Andy Lloyd 

My art is about capturing beauty, pure and simple.  I've been painting for about 20 years, and am self-taught.  I mostly make use of Winsor and Newton acrylics as a medium, painting on canvas board or box canvases.  On rare occasions I work with watercolours.  I specialise in figurative realism, but also paint landscapes and wildlife scenes.

My speciality is creating a shallow depth of field effect on canvas.  This creates depth to the painting by varying the degree of focus throughout the painting.  This technique works well for portraits, and certain types of still-life. 

My portraits often feature models from around the world, who kindly give me permission to create elegant paintings based upon images from their modelling portfolios.  My thanks go to the many friends I have made through these projects, as well as to the professional photographers I have collaborated with.

There are a number of links to further pages of my work, including my popular murals, which appear in schools, hospitals and homes in Cheltenham and Gloucester.  There's a webpage showcasing some artwork commissioned for private school brochures in England and the USA.  Other work has been used for CD and book covers. 

I am the Chairman of the 'Art in the Park' exhibition in Cheltenham, and I am the webmaster of cheltenham-art.com.  I am also a published novelist and science writer, and have appeared on television, radio and in numerous magazines.
