Andrew has worked as a sculptor/designer, illustrator for the past 18 years. In those 18 years he has worked on a wide range of subjects and created several successful ranges for retail and collectors all over the world. The ranges have varied from wildlife through to fantasy and caricatured characters.
It all started on his degree course at Loughborough College of Art and Design. In the second year he did a project on The Martin Brothers (Victorian ceramic artists). This project helped him develop a skill for caricatured bird and animal sculptures. His first full-time job was with Holland Studio Craft in Stoke-on-Trent. He started with miniature wildlife sculptures then designed and developed his first range which was made up of sporting animals. These were caricatured pieces in a sporting theme.
Next Andrew worked on the Enchantica range created by Andrew Bill. He concentrated on sculpting small dragons, snappa and rattajack characters. Whilst working on Enchantica he was asked to design a new fantasy range that would run alongside and ’Fables’ was born. The range's main topic being unicorns and Pegasus horses. It quickly developed to include other mythological creatures and then wildlife. ’Fables’ was a range that he would work on exclusively for the next 8 years and travel across Britain and America to do events and sign pieces.
’Alfred’ which you own, was a limited edition piece and the editions have all now been sold.
