Feature Artist Bio
ARTIST'S OFFICIAL BIO http://andrewbarrowman.com/painter-profile/
By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by British landscape
painter Andrew Barrowman (born 1966 in Stratford Upon Avon, UK).
Andrew is a landscape artist based in Helston, Cornwall, UK, where he is able to explore the variety of landscapes. Working en plein air and in the studio with oils he tries to capture the atmosphere and ‘feel’ of a place without being too specific to the location.
Born in Stratford Upon Avon, Warwickshire he was always drawing from an early age. This lead him into college studying technical illustration and then a short career in an advertising studio. As computers began to take over, making him redundant, he went back to art college to study wildlife illustration and it is here he really began to paint outdoors. Although the course was primarily about the study and depiction of wildlife, it was the habitat and surrounding landscapes that he really became interested in.
After several years illustrating books and mural painting with schools, he began to do more painting and less illustrating. This has led him to exhibit widely in the UK and he has his work in collections far and wide.
His recent work relies on direct observations of nature, often whilst out walking his dogs. The contrasting light and colour motivates Andrew to paint a landscape and his current work is concerned with this interaction rather than details.
Working on several paintings in the studio at the same time means he always has something to work on in various states of readiness. He also loves painting outdoors, usually finding somewhere quiet, off from the beaten track where he can work quickly and more loosely to try and capture that particular moment in time.

Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist
Andrew Barrowman (Born 1966)
“I love going out to paint direct from the landscape 'plein air'. I find it very satisfying to be out in the elements painting with my oils. I also enjoy working from my studio in Helston, where I can work more into a painting, really getting into the paint to try and capture the light and atmosphere of a place or moment in time.”
