Andrew Field was born in Solihull and is a professional artist who has painted all of his life; he now paints from his garden studio in Stratford Upon Avon. Andrew received a 1st Class Honours Degree from Lancaster University in 2001 and has exhibited regularly in the UAE and UK at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists as well as with The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal Society of Marine Artists and Royal Institute of Oil Painters at The Mall Galleries in London. Andrew moved to the United Arab Emirates in 2004 and painted on the beaches of Abu Dhabi until his return to the UK in 2015. His love of the natural world and his deep-rooted passion for rivers and the sea has lead him to painting this subject repeatedly and to develop a strong following of collectors in the United Arab Emirates as well as the UK. Andrew's paintings of Abu Dhabi documented the organic, raw beauty of remote parts of the coastline and he continues to search for isolated areas of the British landscape that are unspoilt. Andrew paints with oils and uses eco-friendly diluents and mediums that are plant-based and derive from sustainable sources, which alligns with his ethical approach and interest in preserving and celebrating the natural environment.
