Andrew Jenkin is a full-time artist and art tutor, who works mainly in watercolour, depicting British landscapes in a loose, atmospheric style. His flowing, fragmented colours are given free rein to allow the water to blend the paint into a suggestion of structure.
Andrew was born in Cheshire in 1976, spent most of his life in Yorkshire, and now lives in North Wales. In 2012 he was shortlisted for ‘Artist of the Year’ by Artist & Illustrators magazine. He produces original artwork for commercial galleries, and sells greetings cards, books and printed work to various retail outlets across Yorkshire and North Wales.
As an illustrator he has designed images for book illustrations, CD covers, retail displays, museum exhibits, tourist information panels and furniture upholstery.
Andrew has also written and illustrated two books about British folklore; ‘The History & Legends of Castle Hill, Huddersfield’ (2017) and ‘The Curse of the Lambton Worm’ (2009). He has illustrated two books about Honley, the West Yorkshire village where he grew up, and ‘Tapestry’, a children’s fairytale written by Richard King and published by Silverhill (2014).
Andrew also teaches watercolour classes in North Wales, and demonstrates to art societies throughout the UK. He has written articles about watercolour painting for ‘Paint’ magazine.
