What gets me into my studio every morning?

It’s quite simple—that exquisite feeling when the magic comes out of your hands and everything just works.

Anthony was born in 1955 in the game farming area of South Africa. His subject matter is strongly influenced by these memories of unspoiled landscapes, teeming with wildlife. His art could be classified as contemporary semi-abstract, while his style is bold, loose, and expressive. His chosen media are acrylic and chalk on stretched canvas.

Anthony holds permanent exhibitions in five galleries, and has had numerous solo and group exhibitions during his 17-year artistic career.

Anthony lives in Cape Town with his talented author-artist wife, Ann. When he is not painting, he loves escaping into the rugged African bush in search of reference and inspiration.

“I believe creativity is the “clock spring” of life.
Whether you create a business empire or a salad,
the process of creating is what energizes and drives us.
The journey during each creation is so compelling that the process simply drives itself.”
