Years of travel have also greatly equipped Tony to expand his realm of subject matter, although he is well-known for his western subjects which include figurative, landscape, pueblo Indians and cowboys.
Formal training for Tony includes a B.A. Degree from North Texas State University and advanced studies at the Art Center in Los Angeles. Having been born in Texas, Tony and wife Brenda, still reside in the state. He currently lives in Clifton, in the beautiful hill country of Bosque County.
Tony shows in numerous shows throughout the year, including the Prix de West Invitational in Oklahoma City, "Quest For the West" Invitational show in Indianapolis, and the Northwest Rendezvous, of which he is a member.
