A painter of marine and figurative subjects, Amos abandoned the use of brushes using his hands, soft rags and a pallette knife, this lent a greater immediacy to his paintings.
Antony was born in Bristol in 1950. From an early age, he worked with horses and as a nurseryman. There followed by a career at sea working on trawlers, tugs and deep sea cargo ships. By 1980, he had begun to paint more seriously spending more ttime experimenting with different subject matter, bits of card, scraps of material, in an attempt to bring texture and life to the work.
His preferred subjects were those related to the sea, working shipyards, scrapyards, weathered ships and fishing boats, but later included architectural, horse and landscape subjects. He was inspired by the weather, colours of the atmosphere and the brooding hulks of the docks. His love of outdoor life gave him a unique feel for interpreting the many moods of his environment by the sea.
