Andrew was born and raised north of Chicago, Illinois. In the Midwest he developed his love of art and found his calling as a sculptor working as a studio assistant and fabricator. He decided to pursue a formal education as a way to deepen his understanding in the arts and received his Bachelor of Fine Art from Northern Illinois University and his Masters from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. Andrew’s most recent exhibition focused on the concept of joy within the childhood imagination. During his time in Corpus Christi he started Monument Fine Art and Sculpture Conservation with sculptor Paul Seeman. They are focused on the creation and maintenance of public works and are dedicated to the promotion of community and excellence through the arts.
