Andy develops his ideas through drawing and sketching; he simplifies imagery to give clarity to his intentions, experimenting with colour, scale, pattern and texture.
Andy is inspired by ordinary things and everyday objects. He observes and digests information from the world around him to help create images often considering things that seem to have supplanted by the pace of modern life. Reconsidered previous works develop through hand rendering giving ‘happy accidents’.
Screenprinting is the main technique employed. The exacting nature of the discipline enhances the layering of the composition and the colour.
The inherent nature of Andy's work is born out of looking and enjoying the work of others. Artists such as Patrick Caulfield and Andy Warhol are obvious influences, so to the recent work of Michael Craig Martin.
Andy hopes to share his passion for printmaking within his work.
