Tony Sheath was born in London in 1946. He was very keen on painting and drawing from an early age. At the age of ten
he won an all London art competition for schools. After leaving school, he worked for an investment trust in 'The City'
where in his spare time he would paint pictures for friends and colleagues.
In 1976 he started painting professionally. He had always loved the countryside, painting it seemed to him, the natural
thing to do. Shortly afterwards he was signed up by a major Fine Art Publishers and thereafter followed a series of open
edition and limited edition prints of his work, some of which were included for several years in the Top Ten awards by the
Fine Art Trade Guild.
Tony, who is entirely self taught, has had his paintings exhibited Internationally but principally in the UK including
the occasional one-man show in major city locations.
He enjoys relaxing at home with his wife and daughter in the Herefordshire countryside where they have lived for
the past ten years. His hobbies include playing squash, reading, astronomy, cycling and wasting many hours trying to
accomplish something on his newly acquired keyboard!
