Initially self-taught Tony started painting in 1989. His first acrylic painting entitled 'Little Girl Learning The Belagaana' (see Home Page) is inspired by a photograph seen in a magazine on the life of the Navajo indigenous peoples of SW North America.
Now retired, he is spending more quality time on developing his painting skills and enjoyment of experimentation with different media/subjects. Due to his appeal of vibrancy and bringing colour and texture to life he intends specialising in oils and mixed media. Recently a member of the Camel Valley Artists, Cornwall under the tutorage of Wendy Parkyn.
Married to Valerie, he now resides in Stroud, Gloucs. He is a retired CEO of the South Bucks Hospice (2013) which is based in High Wycombe (http://www.sbh.org.uk). The hospice has been another of his passions in the past for 31 years. He was also an avid global birdwatcher and travelled the world to the most unlikely places to seek and locate rare birds. The more inhospitable location the better the birds seems to be the rule! He also studies wild flowers and since 2016 has now a key interest in Mycology or Fungi where he records and reports unusual specimens through the British Mycological Society. Travelling also inspires and informs Tony's art.
