|Previous Artist - Andrew Keenleyside|
Andrew Keenleyside lives and works in Hertfordshire, teaching at one of the country's top independent boys schools. He is a Painter/Printmaker (having studied fine art and etching [under Les Duxbury] at Kingston and Reading University) and during the long summer holidays he involves himself in his own personal art projects. With family connections in Norfolk and spending time there it is inevitable that the landscape around the North Norfolk coast should inspire him. He endeavors to record the cool colours and the clear crisp light of the area, big skies and the open flat landscape. His influences tend to be artists such as Pissarro and Sisley, with the use of rustic greens and tranquil blues in their palette. His paintily approach is particularly evident in the skies, water and foliage. Andrew reflects that 'I try to capture the essence of a landscape and the memory it leaves behind'. He has had a series of one man shows in London and the home counties, his work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, and he is also represented in private collections in the USA, the far East and Europe.
