Andrew Barns-Graham

Andrew Barns-Graham's style is distinctive and completely appropriate when considering his subject matter.

Hard-edged contours and perfectly blended colour rid his women of any realistic imperfection.

Detail has been reduced to draw our attention to those facial features which are suggestive of idealised beauty - the sultry pout, sculpted cheekbone, or suggestive eyebrow.
