"Andrew's paintings focus on light and it's
play on the subjects He depicts."
-To the Shore Once More
Andrew grew up in Rhode Island on the shores of Narragansett Bay. In 1985 he received a degree in Art History/Studio Art from Bucknell University. Andrew moved to New York City after college and spent 15 years studying oil painting part time at the Art Students League. Instructors Barbara Adrian and Peter Homitsky had a particularly beneficial influence on his work at the League.
In 2000 Andrew moved to Summit, NJ where he continues of paint in oils in his home studio. Andrew focuses with special intensity on the patterns that narrates through waters reflection, through the movement of waves and the formation of clouds, and thought the effects of light. He favors large canvases to accentuate the beauty of water and sky and their dramatic intersection.
Over the past few years, Barnegat Bay and the New Jersey Shore have provided inspiration for his work. He has painted a number of scenes from Spring Lake to the Barnegat Bay area, including Sea Girt, Bay Head, the Bay Head Yacht Club vicinity, Mantoloking, and Normandy Beach.
