​​​​​Anthony is a prize-winning professional artist, painting instructor and art exhibition juror who has worked internationally as an architect in the past but in recent years has devoted himself entirely to painting, teaching and art exhibitions.  Inspiration for his painting comes from nature in all its forms -- floral, birds, animal, aquatic life and geological formations.  One of Anthony's favorite quotes:  "Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you."  - Frank Lloyd Wright​​​


Anthony was the proud recipient of the brAIDS ARTreach 2006 First Prize award for his painting “Lilly Pond Treasure” In Jacksonville, FL and was the signature artist the following year. He also received the Best of Show 2013 Award at the Art-On-The-Green Show in 2013.   We invite you to visit numerous images of Anthony's artwork under the "Portfolio" tab.​​​  Many of his paintings have been in one-man and group exhibitions in England and the East coast of the US.
