Andy's Part of the Project

Barry Island (Ynys Y Barri) from another angle.

One of the things that I miss most about living in the UK is my wonderful, amazing, incredibly talented ex-housemate, Andy. We got on like mad from the moment that we met and he and his two sons were such an important part of my life over there.

When I got an e-mail from Andy with his link to the World Beach Project, I was thrilled to finish our Project Over 3,493 Miles and to have his part posted on the Victoria & Albert Muesum's website. His photographs are marked Ynys Y Barri (Barry Island).

They found a tree on the beach and made leaves and branches with stones

Andy is a very talented mosiac artist with projects all across Wales, and in North and South America. He's just launched his new website, which you can visit here. These are some examples of his work.
