Welcome to AndyKnillArt

Why visit my website?

I am hoping that you are here because you have seen some of my work or have been told about it by someone else. The intention of the site is to showcase my art and photography. Some of it is just for myself and other pieces are offered for sale.

When did you start?

I was a geography (and other subjects) teacher to 11 – 16 year olds until December 2016 when my mental health meant that my life needed a new direction. I had been keeping sketch books since June 2015 as a mindfulness exercise that helped me to switch off from work.

I arrived in Purbeck, Dorset on the Jurassic Coast. I realised that I used a medium that no-one else locally was so I thought I would see if any of my work would sell. Intended as a hobby / semi retirement activity.

Is it still just a hobby?

My art has become something that I work at all year roundabout not full time. I have now developed it into a small business whose aims are twofold:

– to sell some art

– to gradually pay for itself

It is still a hobby too.

Can we(I) buy your art online?

If you see some work that you are interested in as a greetings card, print or original piece please use the contact form. I have decided to not run a fully functioning store online but can invoice clients and post work on.

Thanks for your interest in visiting. All feedback welcome.
