Tony Bishop

Since being in Southland I’ve met many delightful people, all of them with very different interests.

One of these is Tony Bishop, here seen posing in front of a portrait of himself. The painting, quite a strong likeness, was made by someone else.

His house is a goldmine of diverse objects. I quite like this photo and because of the flat planes of colour I can see it being made into a tapestry, something I’ve wanted to make for some time. I would have to pay someone else to actually stitch it because my stitching always looks tormented.

A sign on the front door says NO EFTPOS.

Tony is an actor, painter, collector and wit and best of all, a friend.
