Sybil Andrews is best known for her modernist style printmaking, for which she won international acclaim. Her first formal art training was on John Hassall's correspondence course, during the First World War. She went on to master lino-cutting under Claude Flight at the Grosvenor School. Between 1929 and 1937 she worked under the pseudonym 'Andrew Power'. This was a tribute to Cyril Power, with whom she shared a studio and collaborated at the time. Andrews moved from London to Hampshire in the late 1930s. After the war she emigrated to Canada, where she continued to practice and teach art.
