One such artist being Katherine Fryer, who at one time lectured at the Bath Academy of Art and knew William Scott, Rosemary and Clifford Ellis, met Walter Sickert and became friendly with his wife Therese Lessore. Later she went on to teach painting at the Birmingham School of Art. Much has been learned through Anthony’s friendship with Katherine who is now 96 years old, and they still meet regularly.

He was elected an Associate of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 1998 and became a full member in 2002. Further recognition has followed and after being given the Davison Award for the Best Group of Paintings at London’s Mall Galleries in 2005 he was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in the same year.

As well as various mixed exhibitions he has a successful one-man show under his belt and a recent show of 23 of his works in Birmingham prompted a fellow RBSA artist to write to him, commenting ‘…the sonorous colour, harmonious and excitingly rich textures of your oil paintings are breathtaking’.
