He travels during the summer displaying and selling much of his art in venues and shows throughout Idaho, as well as nationally.
Andy has won awards for his work and has been invited on numerous occasions to be the guest artist at prominent art venues. Andy manufactures the reproductions of his work to maintain the accuracy of color and sharpness for his prints. These prints are numbered, limited editions created on archival paper or canvas. He is available to do custom work and commissions upon request. He paints some in plein air, but mainly works from photos he composes and then designs the paintings using the best of several compilations of the images. The Sewell Studio & Gallery located on his property is open to visitors when he is home. Call first, then stop by for a visit. Andy hopes his art can add grace to your home and make your living space even more beautiful!
