After a fulfilling career as architect and landscape architect Andrew's love of art decided him to devote his time fully to painting. Watercolour was his chosen medium and his aim was to develop a style which moved away from an 'architectural' rendering in favour of a loose, expressive technique which would result in fresh and lively paintings overlaid onto a more considered composition.
Andrew's painting is concerned with creating a dynamic balance between factual elements of the subject and the free-flowing spontaneous rendering full of light and atmosphere. He believes that watercolour does not have to be 'wishy washy' but is an ideal medium for creating subtle and unified compositions having a full range of tone, colour and texture.
He divides his time between painting London, Hampton Court area and the landscape of his home town of Rye East Sussex.
