Andrew paints for the sheer joy and challenge of it. In his own words, his paintings reflect, “an on-going attempt to distinguish the essential from the decorative and to discern the rhythms, patterns and geometry in nature.” He derives his greatest delight from the physicality of the creative process – the act of “scraping, rubbing, blotting and tearing to get a particular effect.”

While best known for his landscapes, his mixed-media works are also attracting attention.

Born in Jamaica, schooled in England, he settled in Canada in 1973. He studied at the Academy of Art Canada, formerly the College Street Studio, from 2001 - 2005.

A painter and drawer since childhood, Andrew was a chartered accountant in private practice until he turned to painting full-time in 2001.
