This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born and raised on a farm near Rochester, New York, Andrew DeVries left school at the age of 15 and remained on the farm for five years, painting in the time left to him after the farm work was done. At the age of 20, he moved to Denver, CO where he spent two years drawing and painting the dancers of Ballet Denver.

Reike Maria Love, the artistic director of the ballet, suggested that he try sculpture, and according to the artist ". . .as soon as I felt the clay in my hands, I knew that I'd found my calling." He was apprenticed to sculptor Ed Dwight and learned about metalwork in the foundry of artist Lee Schenkeir. He also credits Raelee Frazier for teaching him about the craft of mold making and Elliott Offner, a mentor, friend and artist, for influencing his work.

With a studio located in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, Andrew DeVries has become primarily a sculptor in bronze who casts all his work in his own foundry; he also creates original pastel drawings. Working with figurative as well as symbolic/abstract forms, he is particularly known for his dance inspired work. Other frequent subjects include characters from myth and other spiritual traditions such as angels, as well as commissioned portraiture.

DeVries is a member of the Sculpture Society of Canada, and his work is in the National Museum of Dance; the Chesterwood Museum where he was also a Sculptor-in-Residence from 1996 to 2003; Springfield Museums; and Ventfort Hall Museum of the Gilded Age.
