Andy Skinner is an established mixed media artist and tutor who teaches regular workshops all over the world.
Andy is an accomplished painter and ceramicist but is best known for his ‘industrial gothic’ altered art and assemblage pieces. His unique style is edgy, dark, and enigmatic, pushing the boundaries of the medium with new and innovative techniques.
Born and raised in Oxford, England, Andy was interested in art from a young age and the influence of his parents is obvious in his artistic style. His mother, a watercolour artist, encouraged Andy’s love of paints, while his father, an engineer with a knack for constructing amazing toys and gadgets from found objects, inspired the quirky and 3D elements of his altered art pieces. Since giving up his successful ceramics business, Andy has immersed himself in the mixed media world he loves.
He works as Executive Creative Consultant for DecoArt Inc, using his expertise to develop their innovative Media line of products, and is also a product designer for Stampendous and Tando Creative.
