Andrew Ferneyhough took on a love of drawing from a very early age, eventually turning it into a passion to create symbolic, surreal and occasionally shocking imagery. Starting out exclusively in gothic ballpoint pen illustrations, his style spans a vast array of artistic expression, varying from sharp graphic design to impressionistic sci-fi landscape; from fantastical religious illustration to stunning picturesque portraits and more. Taking inspiration from classical painting, Surrealism, wildlife, graphic novels, steampunk, Art Nouveau, religious iconography, album artwork, anatomy, and his own imagination, he utilizes acrylic painting, aerosols, markers, pens, pencil & chalk drawing, Photoshop, seashells, or simply whatever suits the task.
In 2010, Andrew graduated from the Ontario College of Art & Design with Distinction, majoring in Drawing & Painting, with minors in both Art History and Material Art & Design. His artwork has graced the covers of numerous albums & band merchandise, posters, t-shirts, suitcases, websites and many thoroughly happy people's walls/skin. These days, he lives on and work out of Mayne Island, British Columbia with his parrot companion Wynnifred often found on his shoulder, as an exhibiting artist and graphic designer, as well as one of two co-owners of EnVision Gallery, representing over 75 artists from in and around Canada's Southern Gulf Islands, not too far from a beach full of oyster shells/canvases.
