Biography

Initially self-taught Tony started painting in 1989. His first acrylics 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.

Tony started painting in any great depth in 2003, when he attended art school in his leisure time, which he continues to do. Most of the works seen in his web site gallery are the results of sessions which have rarely been more than 4-6 hours in duration.

Now retired, he is looking forward to spending more quality time on developing his painting skills and enjoyment of experimentation with different media. Due to his appeal of vibrancy and bringing colour and texture to life he intends specialising in oils and mixed media.

Married to Valerie, he now resides in Wadebridge, Cornwall. 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 for the past 31 years. He is also an avid global birdwatcher and travels 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 has a increasing interest in Mycology or Fungi. Travelling also inspires and informs Tony's art.
