biography - about the artist 

Andrew's approach is influenced mainly by the most recent followers of the East Anglian School of Artists, and in common with this group, the initial work for his paintings is completed on location. 

He has found inspiration for his interest in light and atmosphere in landscape in France, Italy, East Anglia and even Egypt. 
His work can be seen in many prominent galleries countrywide and has been purchased for public, private and royal collections, both at home and overseas, including the House of Lords' art collection.
