Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of the artist Mari Andrews. Her works tread the line of drawing and sculpture in a beautiful way. I think they look so amazing in a group like this showing the shifts in sizes and overall shapes.
