Andrew Roache worked as a veterinary surgeon in civilian practice and ?the Royal Army Veterinary Corps before moving to Gloucestershire to ?develop a garden for sculpture exhibitions.
While in the army he? trained as a sculptor under Les Johnson. He works primarily in clay, which he casts in iron resin limited editions. His preferred subjects? are animals and birds.
I have worked with animals for most of my life and that interest has ?been reflected in my sculpture, a passion which I have been pursuing?for the last twenty years. I mostly model animals and birds in clay ?which I then produce as limited edition iron resin casts. My work is ?intended for outdoor display and I like the way that iron weathers? naturally. I hope that having editions in resin makes my work ?accessible to most art lovers.
