Born in 1959, Castor Bay, Auckland, New Zealand. Tony began his art career in the early ‘80s after a brief stint in commercial advertising. He taught himself to screenprint and supplied prints to galleries in Auckland. The focus of these works was the Northland coastal landscape.
After returning to Auckland in 1984 he set up a working studio in Campbell’s Bay, on the North Shore of Auckland. He continued producing Limited Edition Screenprints and paintings celebrating the New Zealand coastline.
He established a new painting and screenprinting studio near Devonport before moving to Takapuna Beach.
His work continues to express the vibrancy, colour and authenticity that he’s known for, only achieved by someone who is in touch, in synch and fully entrenched in the lifestyle and beach life that is New Zealand.
