AboutAndrew trained as an architect at Manchester University in the 1970s, where he was influenced by classic Modernist design and the beginnings of the radical community architecture movement. This was to shape his development as an artist in the creative melting pot of 1980's Glasgow. Thirty years on his work has evolved into a mature form which is rigorously structured in terms of colour and composition, whilst reflecting a wide range of concerns and interests, not least the many facets of sustainability and ecology.His close chromatic harmonies and expressive reduction to the essentials of each subject are underpinned by skilled draughtsmanship and frequent visual wit.
