Creative Adventure Downunder Tutors

 

Andy Skinner

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.

What you see, is what you get....I put it all out there every day. I am the mom of four great kids (20 & 19 year old sons plus boy/girl 14 year old twins). For me, every day is full of color and inspiration. I am happiest behind my camera capturing life’s every amazing second. I live life with a creative edge and know that art is my calling. Most days you can find me in my art studio using all mediums; water colors, acrylics, mixed media and more to capture life’s precious memories.
