"My name is Tony Noble. I am an artist living and working in Batley, West Yorkshire, England. My current studio is in Redbrick Mill, Batley Carr, West Yorkshire. I am very grateful to the late Mr Stephen Battye, his family and the directors of Redbrick who have provided me with studio space since 1999.
