In Skaters, Andrews demonstrates her interest in channeling the rhythm of the human figure engaged in either work or sport. sport. This linocut, produced in the years after Andrews emigrated to Vancouver Island, Canada, highlights the vitality of the human form, which goes in hand with the ideas of vigor and speed that dominated her oeuvre. The blades of the ice skaters in this print echo the curves of the shadows behind, conveying a remarkable sense of speed.

After emigrating to Canada after the Second World War in 1947, Andrews expanded her visual vocabulary to include scenes of nature and agricultural labor. In the thirty years of her life spent in North America, Andrews lived in relative isolation, having lost the level of recognition and the Grosvenor School artistic community she had in England. She continued making linocuts her entire life. Andrews received important critical attention for her art in the last decade of her life from Canadian, American and British Museums. In total, Andrews made about 80 linocuts; half of her output was completed before 1939.
