Born in Birmingham, UK, Andrew graduated from Lancaster University with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art and Geography in 2001. Andrew was awarded a scholarship in recognition of his achievement and contribution to the Art Faculty and his large canvases were exhibited at the university for three years.
His work is a direct and emotional response to the natural world and in particular the physical geography of the landscape. When drawing and painting he works and reworks areas as if sediment is being deposited then eroded, scratched, scraped, up to the point where the fluidity of the landscape flows across the canvas, texturing each composition until it reads like Braille. He paints in an instinctive way, interpreting the force of nature and moving between impressionism and semi-abstraction.
