About The Artist – Ian Henderson
I’ve been painting portraits and animals for as long as I can remember.
I studied at the Heatherley School of fine Art from 1972/1976 then at the City and Guilds from 1976/1978. During this time I was involved in a series of paintings of Winston Churchill with his nephew Spencer Churchill for the American market, also worked along side Bernard Hailstone RP, Portrait Painter for a short time.
Having left college I moved to Germany doing commissions on the German market and also with the British Military plus working as an art teacher. Having spent over 25 years in Germany I returned to England in 2009 and now live in Salfords Village in the borough of Reigate and Banstead in Surrey.

“The Surrey Artists website looks wonderful and has far exceeded my expectations. It is so professionally done and the paintings have been produced perfectly.
Many people who had been impressed with the website contacted me, resulting in them enjoying a visit to The Local Artists Exhibition in Weybridge and several paintings were purchased, one couple travelling from Reigate to search for a local painting to take with them to their new home in California.”
