Andrew Hood is a Bristol based artist who was brought up in Edinburgh. He then moved to Manchester where he worked as a graphic designer until returning to fulltime education to study illustration at John Moores University Liverpool where he won the Liverpool Life Painting Open and Gorstella award for painting. 


Andrew makes several trips abroad each year to gather references for his paintings. Recent journeys have taken him to Tuscany, the South of France, Morocco and Croatia. Whilst he enjoys working abroad he often looks for beauty within our own diverse and engaging landscape from the Scottish Highlands to the rugged Cornish coastline.


Andrew's work has regularly been accepted for the RWA Autumn Show and this year was selected to show in the RHA annual exhibition. He is an annual exhibitor at the London Art Fair, Art Holland and has recently exhibited at the Oriel Gallery, Ireland, Beaux Arts, Bath and the Weifhaus Gallery near Eindhoven.
