grace your table or add to your collection of natural art.
from highly detailed pieces which accurately portray songbirds, birds of
prey and waterfowl, to more whimsical, stylized works which suggest

celebrates the advancement of native craft by transforming burls to

A passion for the past inspires Andrea to carve birds, animals and
objects. Inspiration is drawn from many sources such as nature or 18th

found items. Mixing the old with new ideas is an interesting challenge
and allows Andrea to use her imagination and sense of humour.
