From a young age Andrew was always interested in drawing and how we use lines to capture observed and imagined places. He studied architecture first in Plymouth and then at the Royal College of Art in the early 1990s where his interest in multi-disciplinary design practice grew whilst exploring a wide range of drawing methods before graduating into a digital world.
Andrew teaches drawing and design at Edinburgh College of Art and is a Teaching Fellow in Interior Design. He draws every day. For the last 5 years he has taken part in the global 100daysproject by drawing city scenes from direct observation and experience. He is also a regular member of the Edinburgh Urban Sketchers group when teaching allows.
His work is meticulous and detailed, capturing our city landscapes and interiors through rigorous and commited line and coloured drawing. His drawings bring a focus to how we see places and catalogue the everyday in a layered and techically rich way.
