Andy   was born in the suburbs of Northampton in 1978 and has been drawing  ever since he can remember. 

He studied Art & Design at Northampton College but his first job, in 1996, was  washing up at a restaurant to support his art studies.


He became extremely good at cooking and within five    years was Head Chef in an Italian Restaurant in Northampton. 

Because art has always been his passion, he began to combine his love for food with his love for art and started creating 'food art'.    His Instagram site 'Porcelain Canvas' has nearly    50,000 followers and he is featured regularly in the popular press from Vogue to the Daily Mail. 


He is inspired by the works of John cooper Clarke, Monet and Banksy, although he always maintains his family are his real inspiration.


He is a huge Star Wars fan (and has an invitation to be a Storm Trooper in the next movie because of a Star Wars Inspired dessert he created) and his favourite author is JRR Tolkien.
