Born in Surrey, Andie gained a BA Honours in Graphic Design from the London College of Printing in 1975 and started her career working as a graphic designer in central London working for IPC magazines and Haymarket Publishing amongst others .
Having enjoyed the adrenalin flow of the cut and thrust of life and work in central London for many years, in the early 1990s the decision was made to move to her husband’s homeland of west Wales to change and improve the quality of life. This move offered Andie the opportunity to take up painting full time.
Andie’s work has made regular appearances in group and solo art exhibitions both within the UK and further afield including Japan, Ireland, Brazil and the USA.
In 2013 through her participation in The Sketchbook Project, her work will tour throughout North America, including Toronto. It will subsequently be archived at The Brooklyn Art Library in New York.
Andie was invited to draw musicians performing live on stage during the 2012/2013 Young Voices concert series, leading to a series of commissioned paintings. To view a short video – click here…
In April 2012 she was elected as an Associate Member of the Society of Women Artists, having won the St Cuthberts Mill Prize at the Society’s 150th exhibition at the Mall Galleries in July 2011.
Also in 2011 Sir John Pluthero, chairman of Cable and Wireless Worldwide and founder of Abstract Critical, selected her work for the ING Discerning Eye exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London.
Amongst other awards are the Judges’ Prize at Artsfest Fishguard and the Landscape Painting Prize at Art Matters Gallery Tenby; Andie has twice received an Oppenheim-John Downes Memorial award – most recently for bronze casting in 2007.
Features about Andie have appeared in the local and national press, in art books, on television arts programmes and on the radio. Her work has been purchased by the Arts Council of Wales and she also has work in the Government Art Collection, and in the private collection of former First Minister Rhodri Morgan.
