Andrew has been making welded steel sculpture since graduating from the Ontario College of Art in 1968. He established a home and studio in a picturesque fruit orchard in the Niagara area, before moving out west to Salmo in 1992, finding an atmosphere conducive to making art there. His distinctive sculptures have appeared at galleries, open spaces, and institutions across Canada.
