Biography

Andy McGuire

I am a self-taught artist inspired by a love of nature which came from climbing in the Scottish Highlands. My landscape photography is an extension of this and both capturing and painting the beauty of nature is such a satisfying thing to do. Despite my technology background my influences are rooted in the love of the old masters and realist painters hence the level of detailing in my work. Primarily my medium would have been in oils because of the colour range and realism you can create. However more recently I have been mastering the art of the pastellist favouring it's immediacy, vibrancy and light. I put a great deal of effort into creating paintings that I am happy with and hopefully the enthusiasm and effort I've put into them shows. Hope you enjoy my efforts.

My site will be evolving and changing over the coming months and much more content is yet to be prepared and uploaded - though I need to get back to the painting too.

Comments and enquiries are most welcome so please contact me : )
