Anthony Amico (Tony) born in the close knit community of Dunmore, Pennsylvania. Raised in the post WW2 era of the 60’s 70’s, Tony grew up in an Italian-American neighborhood with a working class upbringing. Tony always had an artistic flare about him and creativity was an inherited trait that he never took for granted.
Although he explored several vocations, ultimately, ‘Masonry’ would be his calling.
As life and circumstances progressed, his art was ever intertwined through the pages of his life.
After the loss of his only child, Michelangelo, writing would take a place in his heart often as a way to communicate to himself and eventually, as a way to reach out to others.
His style of writing is to create visual images through his words and thoughts. Hence the title, ‘Painting with Words of Encouragement’.
