Andrew Walton


"A central preoccupation is with landscape. I work directly in the landscape to deepen experience and gather information. This is translated in the studio. The images are a synthesis. They are a fusing of the seen, known, remembered and maybe the sounds and smells as well.

"While local environment is special, travel has provided great inspiration. Cornwall, India, Spain, British Columbia.

"The museums of Oxford have been a source of fascination since childhood. I continue to visit and draw in them regularly. They have also been a spur to collect African carvings, skulls, feathers, Indian folk art as well as the general bits and pieces with which artists have a habit of cluttering their studios."

Andrew studied at Oxford School of Art and Cardiff College of Art, and was also a Junior Fellow at Cardiff College of Art.  He was Artist In Residence in Grand Forks, British Columbia, and has selected exhibitions for the Arts Council.
