    Hello Veronica, my name is Andy Manning, I am a local artist and I work with natural materials and found objects, to produce figurative and abstract Sculpture, installation and workshops. As I explore the human condition, consciousness and our interact with the environment, I attempt to unveil the invisible, to show the extra ordinary in ordinary and experience the unexpected. I communicate the possibility, opportunity and necessity, to observe, become present and interact creatively, rather thank destructively, with the immediate miracle of being alive on this amazing little planet.
    I have been involved with an artists collective, producing public sculpture, workshops and private commissions for 15 years and since realizing, as an armature artist working in conservation ecology, that I needed a positive way to communicate about these important areas, I have worked and learned alongside two experienced, professional artists. I now feel ready, equipped and informed to share what I have learned with a wider audience and I am assured that you are the very best person to speak to about how to make that happen. I would, very much, appreciate your thoughts on what I have in mind.
