Andrew Shimmin


I was born in Liverpool in 1967. After leaving schooI I completed a 2 year foundation course in art before embarking on a 3 year degree in Technical and Scientific Illustration at Blackpool College. I have followed a career as a Technical Illustrator since 1988 and currently work in the Aerospace industry. I have painted from an early age and have utilised my skills to produce paintings which are typically highly technical and detailed in nature. I strive to become an accomplished watercolour artist, which is reflected in my other paintings of railway scenes; also another passion which has carried through from childhood. I also enjoy painting Wildlife, Landscapes, Townscapes and Architectural subjects where detail is at the forefront of the compositions.
