Andy Brinkley Studio


Andy Brinkley's Studio is located in rural North Carolina, about six miles from Hickory. This bucolic setting, along with a lifetime love of the natural world, sets the tone for his work. "By being secluded in a natural setting, I have set the tone for the type of people I want working with me and the kind of work we do." That work is as varied as the imagination will allow, from small whimsical garden creatures to indoor and outdoor fountains to distinctive wall sculpture. All of these reflect Andy Brinkley's love of the natural world. Andy's work is displayed in many of the nation's finest art and craft galleries, and in many corporate offices throughout the country.
