Andrew studied at the Ruskin School of Fine Art and St Edmund Hall, Oxford. He has exhibited at the New English Art Club, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Institute of Oil Painters (winner of the 2002 Windsor and Newton Award), the Royal West of England Academy, and a number of galleries throughout England and Scotland.
Much of his work is inspired by his travels, attempting to capture the essence of a place, rather than a mere likeness. This he does through abstraction, a means of producing work that “gets underneath the surface of a subject”. Starting with a sketch or an oil study on location, Andrew translates the impressions of his travels into paintings, allowing them to evolve naturally over time.
