Andrew Woods entered visual arts as a therapeutic outlet several years ago. Having previously worked as a writer, he wanted to develop a new artform and figured a combination of writing and visual art would be a more compelling way to express his ideas. His love of storytelling has carried him through some of the more difficult moments of life. Much of his inspiration comes from his own past experiences dealing with mental health related issues. Ultimately, his goal in sharing his work is to inspire others, to offer a different perspective on life, and to help bring people together, despite the polarities that exist in today’s world.
His belief is that through storytelling, maybe we can extend beyond ourselves and see what is ultimately true – that we are as unique as we are similar.
