In 1922, wishing to pursue her interests in art, Sybil Andrews enrolled at Heatherleys School of Fine Art, London. But it was not until she became school secretary and attended Claude Flights linocut classes at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art that she really found her style, and she quickly became another acolyte of Flights enthusiasm for the colour linocut.
In 1929, the Redfern held the first exhibition of British colour linocuts of the Grosvenor School and continued to represent Cyril Power and Sybil Andrews during both of their lifetimes.
From 1932, she exhibited regularly at the Redfern Gallery and participated in touring exhibitions to China, Australia and Canada.
During the Second World War, Sybil Andrews worked in a shipyard where she met her husband, and soon after (1947) the couple emigrated to the remote logging town of Campbell River on Vancouver Island, Canada. Here she achieved a large following which lasted well into the 1950's. In the 60s she fell into obscurity, but was rediscovered in the 1970s. She died in 1992 leaving a body of work totalling almost 80 linocuts
