Andrew Macara was born in Derbyshire in 1944. Although Macara studied contemporary modern British Art for a short period with Leonard Fuller at the St Ives School of Painting, he considers himself very much a self-taught artist.
Today Andrew Macara is one of the most collectible British artists and has undertaken several painting commissions for Public and Private Modern British Art collectors. These include: a series of contemporary paintings for Sir Anthony and Lady Bamford; Scott Bader Company; New Parliamentary Building; Westminster and Hilton Hotel Group for their corporate headquarters. He has also won many prestigious art awards such as: Sir Huw Weldon, Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition, Brian Sewell, Gileas Auty and Lord Palumbos choice, Discerning Eye Exhibition. Andrew was awarded the coveted De Lazlo art medal in 1985.
