'Pushing the boundaries of abstraction'
Andrew Hood was born in 1964 and brought up in Edinburgh until his family settled in Cheshire. Initially he worked as a graphic designer until he returned to college to study for a degree in illustration at John Moore's University.
Andrew makes several trips abroad each year to gather reference for his painting. 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.
