About the Artist

Andrew is a self-taught artist painting from his home in Tokai, Cape Town.

He has been painting for ten years and has done this on a full time basis for the last three years. The medium is watercolour and acrylic.

His paintings (generally large) depict South African landscape scenes many of which typify the beauty of Cape mountains, vineyards and seascapes.

The emphasis of his work is to capture light and colour and a sense of distance and space. Hence he prefers depicting these elements best on large canvasses.

As he is a keen fisherman, his paintings include some of the trout fishing waters around the Cape. Other subjects of his work include African tribesmen, particularly the Masaai.

Figures and nudes are becoming more intriguing for him, again capturing moods with the use of strong contrasting light and colour.

His work is sold through galleries in Cape Town, Knysna, Durban and Johannesburg the destination of some of this work is the overseas market, namely the U.K., Europe and America.
