Self taught artist Tony Fernandes began drawing and painting at an early age,
the works of Picasso, Gillray, Rowlandson, Remi and Giles captured and fuelled his imagination during childhood.
His first published work appeared on television at aged 10 when he sent in jokes and cartoons to the Saturday morning TV shows.
Honing his talent through the 70's and 80's he first came to International notice in 1988 when the British Government
presented his works as part of their official gift to the Australian Government during the Bicentennial Celebrations.
Tony has established himself as a unique cartoonist and graphic artist influenced by the great satirical draughtsmen of the C18th and C19th.
His highly original approach to this subject matter has made his work much sought after and is held in private and public collections.
Set artist and designer for the movie 'Treasure Island' with Jack Palance and Patrick Bergen, those sharp eyed will see
Tony as a Pirate and Merchant Adventurer. Art Director on 'Sea Warriors - The Royal Navy in the Age of Sail'.
Having lived in or near the Peak District countryside he has at various times kept a variety of animals including
Peacocks, Golden Pheasants, Crows, Geese, Chickens, Ducks, Goats, Rats, Odd Orphan Barn Cats and odd Dogs.
