Artist and Willow Sculptor with Creative Green

Tony became interested in the arts through theatre as an actor, eventually becoming Artistic Director of Trading Faces Theatre Company. He was also a freelance theatrical mask-maker and a workshop leader. He has always enjoyed sculpting in wire, exhibiting his full-sized galvanised wire figures alongside his theatrical masks in theatres and art centres throughout the country. Tony lectured in theatre, design and art at Abingdon and Witney College. Tony and Dave Gosling first collaborated on a site-specific project in Mortimer Forest near Ludlow. Ten years later, they joined forces to create sculptures on commission for a private garden and for the playground at Kew Green Primary School. This summer they celebrate hosting the Rugby World Cup with Rugby Borough Council, creating a series of sculptures to be exhibited on roundabouts in Rugby.
