Andrew Hood

Andrew is an artist based in Bristol. He 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 Moores University. As a student he won the Gorstella Award for fine art and the Liverpool Life Painting Open. On graduating he was asked to participate in a group show at the Gorstella Gallery, Chester and since has mainly worked as a fine artist though he still accepts commissions as an illustrator.

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.

Andrew’s paintings are widely exhibited around UK, including RWA Autumn Show, and throughout Europe. His work is part of many private collections, and he has undertaken a number of commissions including commissions for prestigious corporate clients such as BBC.
