Tony was born and raised in the Enderby area and attended Hazelton old town school for two years of wood carving on the Northwest Coast. He is mostly self-taught and chose to work with glass because “there aren’t a lot of local artists working with this medium”. Some of his glass works and designs can be viewed at the Enderby Esso Station, as well as on display at the new School District #83 building in Salmon Arm. He also designed logo’s for the Annual Diabetes Conference held in Penticton and for a local Insurance office on Main Street in Enderby.
