Andy Brinkley, a native of Virginia, has been working in metals for over three decades. Initially a blacksmith, Andy began to utilize various metals and has specialized in brass and copper for the past 30 years. He started working out of a small basement shop and today his studio is on a rural woodland nestled in the Appalachian foothills of North Carolina.
Whether tending to his gardens or sculpting at his bench, Andy's love and appreciation of nature is evident. Forest and marsh foliage are central themes of much of Andy's work.
