Andrew’s paintings and drawings could be described as documentary as he prefers to work from life.

Andrew has been recording the declining Scarborough Fishing Industry since 2000 renting a baiting shed on the harbour as a studio.

Throughout this time the sea has been a constant in his work.

Constantly changing, constantly inspiring.

In 2006 Andrew was selected to be Artist-in-Residence at Knaresborough Castle with a solo exhibition of the work at the Mercer Gallery in Harrogate.

In 2009 he was Artist-in-Residence in Rosedale on the North York Moors,  documenting the remains of the Iron-Ore Mines and the changing landscape of dale and moor.

He has featured in several publications including ‘Country Living’ Magazine and the Yorkshire Post magazine. He has work in the collections of Scarborough Art Gallery, Mercer Art Gallery and Lord and Lady Derwent.

Prices range from £60 for small watercolours to £2000 for large oil paintings.

Current methods of working: Public Commission, Private Commission, Training, Teaching Life Drawing
