John Andrews

Gainesville, FL, United States

I grew up in Reed City, Michigan attending Ferris State University for welding engineering. I am a self taught artist, primarily using recycled materials to create realistic works of art. I have been welding one of a kind metal sculptures since I met my wife and muse. We reside in Florida where I solely own and operate a small welding business. My future interest in the Michigan area is to build small shipping container homes, unlike my first big welding job, where I helped build a green home using 12 steel shipping containers. I am proud to say, the house of steel became a certified L.E.E.D. Platinum home. Although my welding skills pay the bills, my true passion is to create realistic large sculptures. It was an honor to participate in ArtPrize 2012 and 2013, receiving the peoples votes, which helped me finish in the top 25 both years! Recently, through jury selection I was published in the International Contemporary Artist book.
