Original Oil on Board
Andrews career as an artist spans over thirty-two years. He was born in 1967 in Glasgow and now resides in Market Rasen, during this time he has worked in many artistic fields. At the age of 21 his first job in the artistic field was at Games Workshop design studio where he was hired as a figure painter for their magazine 'White Dwarf'. At the time this would help finance his career as an aspiring artist outside of work. Andrew spent many years as a freelance artist taking on many private commissions from pencil portraits to landscapes in oils.
He has been successfully tutoring art classes teaching oils, drawing, water colour and acrylics, as another way to finance being an artist. Teaching is something he thoroughly enjoys; "When I teach art, my aim is to set each individual free on their artistic journeys" and he seeks to do the same in his own artwork. "I would say over the last couple of years, I've been producing some of my best work. I've pretty much closed all my social media down to have 100% focus. The work I'm painting at the moment has been liberating. This is what I love to paint! ... I'm trying to capture, for the viewer, a state of solitude, calmness and harmony."
