Anthony studied at Liverpool College of Art at the time of the Beatles, and came to study painting at London University’s Slade School where his History of Art tutor was the great Sir E.H. Gombrich.

 

He spent thirty years teaching at various art colleges and then set up his ‘Roadshow’ in 1983 to share his enthusiasm for Art and artists and to allow time for painting.

 

He has given over 2,500 presentations and he has given his ‘Vincent’ talk close to 900 times!

 

Anthony continues to be a full time painter and lecturer giving close to 200 presentations a year.
