Tony Weare - Cap Island

Tony has been painting Tasmanian landscapes for 23 years, predominantly the West Coast for the last ten years.

Tony worked at the Renison Bell Tin Mine for three years in the mid-70s and, despite living and working in Hobart, for the next 40 years was constantly drawn back to the west for inspiration.

This urge to return was finally satisfied in 2018 when Tony bought a house in Queenstown. He now spends a significant amount of time exploring and painting the local landscape.

Tony paints mainly in watercolours that owe a lot to the Geoff Dyer techniques, due to Geoff’s guidance and association with Tony in the first decade of this century.
