Andy is a British artist based in Warwickshire. He won the Ashurt Emerging Artist Employees choice prize in 2018.
He is currently engaged in a project with the Institute of Mental Health in Nottingham creating a series of paintings based on people who have experienced Post Traumatic Stress. This is his second project to receive funding from Arts Council England. Previously he created a series of exhibitions based on his work with young people to commemorate the First World War Centenary [www.lostgeneration.info] .
Andy's focus on mental health started during his recently completed MA. He used this to explore his experiences of his father's bipolar condition and how that impacted his growing up.
Andy enjoys working with the public, this is reflected in works such as “Gassed” created with Year 9 pupils of Cockburn School and subsequent projects for Leamington’s Art in the Park and for UHCW
Andy came late to art, becoming a full-time artist in 2010 after spending the first part of his career in marketing research and advertising. A serious illness and a damascene moment on the commute to London lead him to embark on a new direction.
