Anthony has always drawn and sketched, his mother has said he was born clutching a paint brush and although he had painted for many years, it was the early 1990’s before he began to exhibit his work and achieve some success.
His work reflects his love of colour and design and the subject matter covers the Artistic Spectrum from Figurative to Landscape.
He is continually developing his understanding of form and colour using the unique medium of Acrylics and Mixed Media. This allows him to take the painting to a point where he is satisfied that his initial aims have been achieved. Although many of his influences are diverse, all are strongly grounded in colour.
He held several solo exhibitions at Browns Gallery in Jesmond in the 1990’s one of which was sponsored by the Allied Irish Bank. The Bank also had a collection of his work in their Newcastle Branch and the University of Northumbria have paintings in their Business Centre. His work can be found in many private collections including those of the Duchess of Northumberland.
In March 2003 Anthony travelled to Berlin with members of the Newcastle-Gateshead Initiative to represent the Northeast at the massive tourism convention and completed a painting of Tyneside which was filmed and broadcast on local television.
While Anthony is known for urban and rural landscapes, he loves to experiment using mixed media to portray people and the world in all of their fascinating aspects.
