Profile: 'I am a sculptor living and working from a studio in Hertfordshire, creating figurative sculpture ranging from traditional and lifelike poses to representational ergonomic shapes of the human form combining the negative and the positive. I had a more unusual education, being home tutored due to severe dyslexia, consequently art became a major passion and a love of wood and tactile materials encouraged me towards sculpture which became an area of achievement away from academia. I then decided not to have a formal education but to gain knowledge and experience from working with professional sculptors gaining fist hand experience. I am inspired by the natural elegance of the human form finding the connection between the concept of people in various figurative positions and the emotions that they portray, captivating. Drawing is a major part of my inspiration, creating shapes and shadows to represent the complexity of the human figure. I now work from a studio within the Digswell Arts Trust in Hertfordshire.' by Andy Thomas
