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.

‘the whole thing is wow!’
‘the feedback here has been brilliant and in due course will you return to run another day?’
