About Anthony

My work draws on many recognizable traditions, Medieval religious art, 19th century British art: Pre-Raphaelitism, Symbolism, Fairy painting, contemporary fantasy and comic book art. However, I do not identify myself primarily as a practitioner of any of these styles. Above all, I care about a unifying element of the best of all this work, a sense of wonder, a suggestion of the beauty and mystery of life, illuminating the mortal world from inside. For better or worse, I don’t think visual art can teach, but it can tell stories that remind people of the important things in life: hope, wonder, love. I can not make a viewer share my world view, but I can suggest a theme, a story. I try to pass along the spark of wonder that inspired me and allow the viewer to complete the story and take their own lesson.
