Andrew developed a deep appreciation of nature during a childhood spent walking and enjoying the wildness of the African landscape. Completing his schooling with awards in Art, he studied Fine Art at the University of Wales, graduating with a first class Honours degree in 2007. Whilst studying, he curated exhibitions and showed work at local galleries and abroad.
The spectacular and often wild landscapes of Cheshire and North Wales were a vital influence on his work and so he established his home and studio near Chester. During this time he obtained further training from St Martins College London and West Dean College, Chichester.
Since then his work has met with critical acclaim and sells locally and internationally. He was selected as an associate member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and his work is regularly selected for the prestigious Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) Annual Exhibition at Mall Galleries. His name was added to the notable “Who’s Who in Art’ (Movern Press). In 2016 he was admitted as a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts (MAFA).
