I was born and raised in Vancouver where she studied visual art and english. I lived on Vancouver Island for several years before moving to Ontario. I now live in Kingston where I divide my time between painting and working as the managing editor of Arc Poetry Magazine out of Ottawa. I have exhibited my work in many group and solo shows throughout British Columbia, and have begun to show my work in Ontario over the last year through many outdoor shows and festivals, local group shows, at Canvas Gallery in Toronto and the Strata Gallery in Elora, Ontario. I am honoured to have my paintings hanging in many private homes and public collections. My subject preference has been non-representational for several decades. As a painter I am surrounded by influence. I am most interested in the vernacular of my own marks and following them. I am grateful for the liberty to do so.

His first career as a graphic designer, illustrator and co-owner of a successful design studio (www.fireengineinc.com) help set the stage for his artistic direction.

His luminous, textural and multi-dimensional paintings reach out and bring his viewers into organic dreamscapes, landscapes and mystical transformations unlike any other. Andrew currently showcases his work in select galleries, and a transformed century Barn Gallery on his small farm in the heart of beautiful Prince Edward County. He also offers encaustic painting workshops in his studio. Fee includes a workbook, all materials, light refreshments and snacks.
