Sybil Andrews is best known for her printmaking. Her Modernist linocuts, which are exceptionally dynamic and geometric representations of speed and movement, reflect the influence of Futurism, Cubism and Vorticism. From 1925 to 1935, Andrews designed eight posters for the London Underground. Of these, six were sports-themed. She worked under the pseudonym Andrew Power as "a tribute to Cyril Power, with whom she shared a studio and collaborated at the time" (ltmcollection.org).
