Andrew Brown mixed media painting

I have always enjoyed the expressive potential of using colour, shape and textural aspects in my work. I hope the viewer also shares in a celebration of these elements. My practice has evolved into layering techniques using acrylic paint, sometimes combined with collage and other media. I like to work on a series of subjects, with varying degrees of abstraction. The small constructions I make, using driftwood and found objects, are also popular.

Following my training at Falmouth School of Art, and a post-graduate year at Brighton, I became involved in education. I taught Art and Design in schools and further education, and also for many years at M.K. College.

I have exhibited widely, showing locally, as well as at Suffolk Coast Galleries, Canary Wharf, and in Northern Germany. Some of my work is also in collections in Michigan and New York, USA.
