ABOUT

TONY SAUNDERS has his painting and music studio in Brooklyn, NY. He is a graduate of Princeton University and the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. Collage has long been the focus and method in his work, both visual and musical, which explores the ways in which we construct meaning and narrative in our daily lives. In 2005, he began to do creative arts engagement with elders living with memory loss, which led to his present career as a care manager and arts advocate. In both his own work, and that which he does with elders, the importance of “play” and living in the present moment are paramount.
