Andy Scott is a figurative sculptor, working in galvanised steel, fibre glass and cast bronze. He is based in Scotland and produces public artworks for clients internationally.
Scott graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a B.A. Hons Fine Art (Sculpture) and a Diploma of Post Graduate Studies Fine Art (Sculpture). He is an associate of The Royal British Society of Sculptors and was awarded a Doctorate in Structural Engineering from Strathclyde University, and an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.
