He draws a great deal of inspiration for his paintings from the Dales, Wold villages and Farms throughout the changing seasons. Andrew studied art at Bradford college. Elected a member of the 'British Watercolour Society' and twice selected a prize winner by the Dalesman magazine for the artist whose paintings best reflect the Dales way of life.
