Andy Heald

Andy has been exploring landscapes over the last 15 years, first as an archaeologist, and now, currently, as an artist.  His influences are coastal plains, particularly around Edinburgh, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders. Andy uses acrylics, sand and varnish as a base for his paintings but the finished products are more like sketches – the paint scratched or rubbed away, drawn over with pencils to create the finished, often abstract, work.
