Andy McDonald was born in London; he learnt to draw in his father’s studio and taught himself to paint. He graduated music school in Los Angeles with honours. He painted images, abstract wall hangings and furniture for high profile LA clients. He studied hypnosis and psychology in London, working as an analytic hypnotherapist. In his art Andy turned from abstract to figurative in order to translate the images he saw in his mind into reality. His work explores the themes of time, journey, and the unconscious. He is also a musician and an astrologer with clients in many countries. His book on astrology and art, The Pattern of Time, was published in 2014. Andy’s paintings have been shown at The Royal Academy and The Royal Scottish Academy, and are in private collections in UK, Europe and the USA.
