Short Autobography from Andy
Andy Duroe was born in England in 1962.
“At the age of thirty I woke up one day, jumped in my car
and besides my guitar and a few clothes I left all my worldly possessions
behind. I then went to the jewellers and bought a gold watch and
had it inscribed ‘Happy Retirement, Love from the Fairies’
for by this time I was hooked on Fairies.I spent many years travelling
as a musician and artist and eventually settled on the in Switzerland
close to the German border.
For 10 years now I have been painting fairies, experimenting with
many mediums, watercolour, oils, acrylic, chocolate, sparrow eggs,
red wine, and even photography.
My main aim is to capture the true organic nature of Fairies. There
is nothing that turns me on more than seeing a nice ripe toadstool
sprouting out of an acorn on a fresh misty morning.
Last year I started my web site Fairy Dome and now my work is getting
recognition and being published, and I have inquiries for images
from manufacturers and my own range of cards and posters being planned.
I am also working on my own book of photographing fairies, it is
based on my own collection with information how to find and photograph
them, with stories from my travels of the magic of the Fairy World.”
Andy Duroe will appear in the new book "500
