Art is inspired by many things; experiences, emotion, and the environment around us.

Andy Mardell is a wood carver, whose artwork comes from, and promotes, nature. His structures are made from fallen native timber, like swamp Kauri from South Auckland. 

He's showcasing his work early next year at the West Coast Gallery in Piha, where he's part of a group of locals who are transforming wet lands behind the gallery.

Andy is in studio with me to talk about his art and community work.
