Andrew began sculpting while in the army, where he served for 20 years in the Royal Veterinary Corps, following 10 years veterinary practice in Devon. He understands animals well, and likes to sculpt them, finding them more interesting subjects than humans.
In 2002 he and his wife bought Showborough House. Over the next few years they devoted their love, time and energy to developing the wonderful gardens, always with a view to holding sculpture shows. The first Showborough House Garden Sculpture Exhibition took place in 2008, and it is now an annual and increasingly popular event.
With typical generosity, Andrew offers both established and emerging artists a public platform, and the first 70 artists to apply are accepted, regardless.
