Andrew Waddington’s images of wildlife and the landscape are created from his sensitive and highly detailed sketchbook works and plant studies. He is well known for his paintings and woodcuts, which often employ his favored motif of the hare and the crow.
Andrew Waddington was born in Buckinghamshire in 1960 and moved with his family to Cornwall in 1971. He studied Foundation Art at Falmouth College of Art (1978-9), later obtaining his degree from Dyfed College of Art.
