He works in a range of media including: Pen & Ink, Biro, Watercolour, Gouache, Acrylic, Oil, Pastel and Mixed Media. He is a member of the Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory where he takes part in their friendly Art club and the young Phoenix club.

Andrew first came to our attention as a contributor to the Birdfair mural in 2019 which was painted in aid of the world famous Fair Isle observatory.

Andrew’s love for the subjects in his highly detailed work is evident. Every example included here is an insight into the rigorous attention to detail which goes into creating each piece of art.

Andrew has made several television appearances, notably on the incredibly popular Springwatch and has won many awards for his artwork including the RSPB Wild Art competition two years in a row!

He still finds time to be involved with a local village project to help protect the rare Turtle Doves in his area. Andrew has appeared twice on local BBC news in relation to this.
