Tony entered his portraits into the BP Portrait Awards at the National Portrait Gallery and was accepted 5 times.

This double portrait is of his Mother-in-Law and her sister.

He also paints portraits and animal paintings as commissions.

He has a studio in Redbrick Mill in Batley. Many of his paintings include detailed objects associated with the subjects. In many cases, the level of detail and his realistic approach take months to paint.

Tony painted the portraits of a local biker gang and their leader.

His other major subject is of local buildings. He paints old mills, shops, flats, car parks  and old garages. They are realistically painted with every brick detailed. He has painted many in Batley, Marsden and Leeds.

He has had paintings accepted into the RA  Summer Exhibition twice. Paintings have also been accepted in other competitions.

 

Many images are at wide angles, appearing even more photographic.

  

Tony also painted a series of garages in various states of repair.
