Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy (b. 1956) is a sculptor, photographer and environmentalist living in Scotland who produces site-specific sculpture and land art. He studied fine art at Bradford College of Art (1974-1975) and at Preston Polytechnic (1975-1978). After leaving college, Goldsworthy lived in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria, and then Scotland. It has been said that his gradual drift northwards was "due to a way of life over which he did not have complete control".
