Sue Andrew’s studies at Edinburgh and Plymouth universities have included anthropology, sociology, art history, and architectural conservation. Her doctoral thesis focused on the medieval oak carvings of men and beasts, including the Green Man and the Three Hares, found in the roofs of the churches of Devon. Sue has supported several churches recently in their quest to discover more about their carvings and has written, and photographed, for reports, guidebooks and interpretation panels.

Sue gives talks and writes about subjects ranging from the cross-cultural journey of the Three Hares motif, and medieval church art and architecture, to Church Houses in Devon, and the life and work of nineteenth-century ecclesiastical carver Harry Hems of Exeter.
