Combining an original perspective of images with a classical foundation, Henri creates richly textured paintings with his unique vision. His superb technical skill, coupled with his unique vision, has firmly established his reputation as a modern impressionist of great renown.
A world traveler, Henri now resides in California. His gardens are reminiscent of Majorca, the island off the coast of Spain, where he called home for several years. It was in this secluded and creative environment that Henri experimented and perfected his artistic style, which we recognize today.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Henri attended the University of Nebraska followed by the University of Southern California, where he received his Master of Fine Arts Degree.
Although this extremely gifted impressionist paints varied subjects: garden scenes, seascapes, still lifes and figuratives, he insists that his paintings are beyond recognizable subject. "If a painting is too finished, too exact, it poses limitations on your ability to see. The image freezes, limiting your illusion. What your are doing in impressionism is focusing on one thing, but you are painting another. I am painting a visual echo of what I see."
Henri is an innovative artist, whose thoughts, skill and style have set him apart from his contemporaries. Using his intuitive technique, he incorporates an extraordinary sense of color with vibrant and radiant images.
