Born in 1971 Anthony Dobson spent much of his childhood sketching rather than doing homework. This passion quickly gained momentum and before long Anthony Dobson had a number of private commissions coming in from collectors. This gave the budding artist a new confidence and he decided to turn down a place at university, choosing to focus on his artwork instead. Since then, Anthony has successfully balanced his artistic career with involved practical work in the arts including framing and printing. Working commercially with artists and building up portfolios for clients cannot have failed to add to his keen eye for colour, line and form.
