Andrew Dandridge Gallery
Limited Edition Prints
Painter of fine english landscapes and seascapes
The Artist - Andrew Dandridge, is a successful landscape and seascape artist with sales in excess of
3,500 original watercolour paintings, a burgeoning greetings card business and a growing
demand for his signed limited edition prints.
Yet despite this success he remains modest and unassuming, clearly driven by his passion for both the English countryside and all things marine, and a genuine desire to share his achievements with the growing number of his followers.
It is this sense of sharing that motivates him and acts as a catalyst for him to increase the occasions where he is able to exhibit his work and talk face to face with the public.
Andrew's home near Eastbourne enjoys spectacular views over the eastern aspect of the South Downs and he reveals with affection what a major source of inspiration they have been. The fact that the Downs have now become the South Downs National Park is a source of great satisfaction for him. Having walked and cycled their entire expanse in search of his subjects, his relationship with them is more akin to that of old friends.
Having studied at Eastbourne School of Art and Design and at the Brighton School of Architecture and Interior Design, now part of Brighton University, he graduated with an Honours Degree.
His career began in the yacht industry as a designer working with
his Father. Together they achieved worldwide acclaim with the
Vancouver 27 – a sturdy 27-foot cutter originally designed by
Robert B Harris for a Canadian couple that wanted to sail from
Vancouver to New Zealand. When they advertised the Vancouver 27 the response was so great that the only solution was to set up a dedicated business as boat builders. Andrew worked in the family firm, Pheon Yachts Ltd, for twelve years before striking out on his own.
Later and in London, Andrew went on to broaden his skills as
an interior designer and architect with a West End architectural
practice. Andrew’s career move to become a landscape artist
and his leap of faith from the drawing board to the easel is
further discussed in conversation with Wendy Peacock – an
extract of which appears on this website, see INTERVIEW LINK
Now his watercolour paintings are highly sought after, they are frequently exhibited in galleries on the south coast and London, and feature in collections all over the world. He works principally in watercolour and gouache, and occasionally in oils or acrylics and while his subject matter is predominately the Sussex and Hampshire Downs he also sallies forth to paint in the Lake District, Wales and Scotland.
