Andrew lives in the peaceful English countryside of Yorkshire. One of his earliest memories is of illustrating wildlife for people visiting his primary school, and he has not stopped drawing since!
Frequently finding himself waking up before the birds are tweeting, his mind bursting with ideas, Andrew has learnt to keep a notebook on his bedside table. So as to not disturb his wife, he will quietly jot down his ideas for stories or illustrations, which so often seem to come to him at this unsociable hour!
Health and fitness also play a key part in Andrew’s lifestyle. He loves to jog along the winding country lanes and over the rolling hills with his dog, Baxter. Here, he gathers his thoughts, often returning in a hurry and panting harder than Baxter, to scribble and sketch ideas before they are lost forever!
Like many of us, Andrew is a big kid at heart, drawing on his childhood memories to create narrative for his children’s books to which he loves to illustrate subject matter to reflect this.
