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. Since graduating he has worked mainly as a fine artist selling work throughout the United Kingdom and abroad.
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.
