View a recent exhibition collaboration.


iPad Artist Andy Maitland makes digital drawings on an iPad using a stylus and the drawing app ‘Brushes’. iPad drawings are made directly from observation outdoors and also in the studio in Surrey, UK.

Andy has been invited to talk about his work at the V&A and Apple. He has worked with London Heathrow Airport, drawn live at
private events and hosted classes at schools. His drawings were recently on display at ‘The Digital Garden® an interactive installation of iPad drawings with augmented reality’, a collaboration with The Royal Horticultural Society.
Andy has also published ‘iPad Paintings and Drawings’ and ‘iPad Drawings’ on the Apple iBookstore. A new print publication of iPad drawings is now available.


Andy draws exclusively on the iPad using a stylus and the drawing app ‘Brushes’.

To create his drawings Andy works outdoors using the Brushes app which records every mark he makes on his iPad. The whole drawing process can then be played back from his first to final mark. Andy’s drawing animations were recently on display at ‘The Digital Garden® an exhibition of iPad drawings with augmented reality’, a collaboration with The Royal Horticultural Society Garden Wisley (The RHS is known for the Chelsea Flower Show, the world’s most prestigious flower show, held in London every year).  


The English landscape in Surrey is Andy’s current subject and has been the main focus of his work since 2012.

He has also been influenced by Hockney and his landscape exhibitions including ‘A Bigger Picture’ at the Royal Academy in London.


Andy lives and works in Surrey, UK. His background training is in the arts. For some years he worked as a graphic designer. In late 2011 he began to explore drawing again. Andy has been drawing seriously since May 2013, after his first pop-up art exhibition, making digital drawings on his iPad and becoming what he calls an ‘iPad Artist’.
