Mari Andrews is a sculptor and installation artist. Her work is a continuation of her drawing practice and employs such varied materials as wire, lead, seeds, stones, mica, gold, soil, salt, pods and thorns. Drawing upon her fascination with nature, science, and the environment, she has incorporated both Nature’s systems and Nature’s randomness into her work. Andrews earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Dayton, Ohio, where she studied art and sociology. Travelling west, she completed her Master of Fine Arts at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. She has been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Fellowship and several residencies, including at the Djerassi Resident Artist Program in Woodside, CA, and at the Cold Press north of London. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, as well as in Japan, Israel, and England.
