Anthony (Tony) Creasey was born in Wimbledon, London where he spent much of his early life. In 1972, he moved to the West Country.
As a youngster, he wanted to go to Art College but his father impressed him on the importance of a career, hence his dream of becoming an artist was replaced by the world of engineering.
In 2002, Tony and his wife Josie, both now retired, moved to Spain’s sunny Costa Blanca. They fell in love with the area and made their home overlooking the beautiful Orba Valley.
At last, Tony could pursue his passion for art and he enrolled on a drawing and watercolour course. However, this did not inspire him sufficiently so he took a step back to reconsider which aspect of art would appeal to him and give him the most pleasure.
In 2010, suffering from debilitating health issue, Tony decided to embark upon an art course in Javea under the tutelage of Marc Meyer. From then on, he has excelled in his interpretation and use of charcoal and acrylic.
The inspiration for Tony’s portfolio comes from his passion for tango, flamenco, jazz as well as life studies and portraits. He is constantly encouraged by his family, many friends and clients who have purchased and commissioned much of his work.
Next weekend, Tony will hold an exhibition in the ballroom at the Hotel Denia La Sella Golf Resort & Spa – with all proceeds going to TodosJuntos.
TodosJuntos work tirelessly to raise funds for less fortunate families in Javea and helped 40 families in 2016 alone.
TodosJuntos work in collaboration with Social Services, who are able to identify those families and individuals most in need – although in respect of dignity, the charity rarely get to know those they support.
The funds raised by TodosJuntos go towards paying utility bills or buying essentials for the children for school, especially lunches. The charity used to purchase school books for the children but the system has since changed and they are now provided by the state.
The exhibition will be open from 10.00am – 7.00pm on Saturday September 9 and from 10.00am – 5.00pm on Sunday September 10.
