Andrew Keenleyside - 2024

Andrew Keenleyside is an award winning local painter and printmaker, who lives and works in the St Albans and Harpenden area of Hertfordshire. His main subject matter is the local landscape and the changing seasons and how these affect the colours and moods of a particular view or composition.

Andrew’s painterly and textural approach is evident in the surface details of his canvases. He reflects: “I try to capture the essence of a landscape by using vibrant and exaggerated colour combinations.” Andrew is also a printmaker who specialises in the technique of ‘Solar-Plate’ etchings, again featuring local views of Hertfordshire. Andrew says: ‘I enjoy the element of chance in the intaglio printing process, as well as the ability to reproduce an image more than once.’

He has had a series of one-man shows in London, the Home Counties and East Anglia, as well as numerous group exhibitions in and around Hertfordshire. His work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and is also represented in private collections in the USA and Canada, the Far East, South Africa and Europe.
