Andy Scott

biographie

I have been captivated by the visual image for as long as I can remember. Most of my professional development has taken place through making artwork for specific exhibitions or commissions and artist-led workshops. My strengths are that I enjoy working within a team, plan and research projects thoroughly, work to set deadlines, complete projects on time and to budget.

The focus of my painting has been vision and perception which has lead to an in depth study of how we see and how a loss of or lack of sight changes artistic working practise and project outcome. My experience as a set and prop maker enables me to introduce a flexibility of materials to special needs workshops according to the participant’s ability and physical practicality. The workshops I run and the development of my body of work are interlinked, nourishing and supporting each other.
