Where the field of architectural illustration today is crowded with computer generated work, Andre offers a rare glimpse into the captivating realm of hand drawn illustration, what he refers to as "the way it used to be done."
Andre's work in architectural illustration spans 20 years securing his position as an important contributor to the world of architectural perspective and interior design illustration. A self-taught illustrator and perspectivist, Andre began his career as a tool and die maker in the space and aircraft industry. He later went on to teach perspective at the Institute for the Study of Classical Architecture and has served as Illustrator in Residence at the prestigious architectural firms of Ferguson and Shamamian, Hart Howerton, and Roman and Williams.
His architectural work has been honored with Awards of Excellence from the American Society of Architectural Illustrators in 2005, 2008 and 2009. In 2007, Andre was elected to the Society of Illustrators through the support and sponsorship of world-renowned artist Murray Tinkelman. In 2017 Andre was elected into the International Society of Scratchboard Artists.
Andre has begun building a portfolio of fine art prints with Jim Reed, Master Printer at the prestigious Milestone Graphics studio in Bridgeport creating hand pulled stone lithograph prints.
His hand pulled stone lithograph print, "Fire Escape 1" resides in the permanent collection of the Slater Memorial Museum and Print Club of Albany, as well as being a member of the Society of Graphic Artists.
