Born and raised in Liverpool, Tony now enjoys the beautiful Cheshire
countryside surrounding his home in Kingsley. After working in
Liverpool for The Prudential for over 30 years he turned to his long
suppressed passion for art. At age 55 he attended Liverpool City
College where he achieved GCSE and A Levels and subsequently emerged
from Wirral Metropolitan College aged 58 with a B.A. Honours Degree
in Fine Art.
Tony specialises in animals in action using mainly copper and bronze
and the work is a result of hours of intense concentration and
physical effort. His portrayals of nature capture the spirit and to
the splendour of a whole menagerie of animals ranging from the
simplicity of a frog to the magnificence of a life size Bengal
Tony was approached by Lever Faberge to supply 3 large sculptural
panels and they are in their permanent collection at Port Sunlight.
His work has been included in Southport's Municipal gallery, The
Atkinson and sites alongside the work of such luminaries as Henry
Moore, Alfred Munnings and Elizabeth Frink. He has recently been

who in art'.
Tony is currently working on two life size flying swans to be cast
in bronze for David Wilson Homes in Cheshire as well as awaiting

part of 2008 Capital of Culture celebrations. He has enjoyed
fellowship and residency placements and is currently Artist in
Residence at Northwich's London Road College. Constantly exhibiting
throughout the country Tony has recently embarked on another series
of limited edition bronzes.
