SHORTLAND, Andrew L

1952 - ?

Born at Barnstable, Devon in 1952, son of Lawrence Finlayson Shortland (1923-1986) and his wife Winifred née Chamberlin, who married at Lambeth, London in 1949. For the past 40 years the sea and the world's shores have been the mainspring for his art. Living on a small yacht ‘Brillig’ for some fourteen years, the different countries being the inspiration for his work. His lifestyle has inevitably been a cycle of feast and famine from selling $10.00 pencil sketches in the West Indies, to recieving enough money to support a year's cruising from one sale. With such an endless variety of scenes and living in some of the most beautiful parts of the world shortage of money has only been temporary. He married in Somerset in 1997, Rika Nanaka and his wife is a talented classical pianist. He now has a home at Old Barn Cottage in Suffolk. www.andrewshortlandartist.co.uk
