Andrew trained at Harrogate College of Art and went on to study illustration at Brighton University. After graduating, he worked as a commercial artist in most fields of illustration including advertising, design and publishing. More recently, Andrew has been teaching art and design, while continuing to develop his personal work.
His work is firmly rooted in the traditional techniques of observational drawing and painting. He is primarily interested in how light and colour evoke a time and place, giving his paintings have a cinematic quality.
