Story

My name is Tony and suffer with morbid complex post traumatic stress disorder that has a massive impact on my every day life. As a way of manageing the condition I was encouraged to try art as a way of helping manage the symptoms. I have never had any lessons so have had to learn everything from scratch myself. I have always had an interest in avaiation and found that I have the ability to reproduce them in paintings. I often find myself struggling with nightmares so end up getting up in the early hours of the morning. In the past I have had a shed to work in and that was my studio. Since we have moved I no longer have that ability as I no longer have the shed. My art is important as it helps me cope. I need to paint as it allows me to escape then intrusive thoughts and flashbacks. My work is known as photorealism and I often give away the original works to service charities to help them raise much needed funds, I also donat to charities the limited edition prints I get signed of my own work. I have supported H4H, HOLIDAYS FOR HEROES JURSEY, RBL, COMBAT STRESS, RAFBF, ABF, SSAFA, ROYAL MARINE ASSOCIATION, BLESMA and more. A work shop is were I produce my work, it allows me to escape my past and produce work that helps so many others. As a thank you for support I will provide a signed print from any of my past works to everyone who helps support me as well as continue to support the charities that support our armed forces.
