Henrietta paints in oil and canvas, has recently started to paint over a gesso ground on board. She builds up the paintings using layer on layer of paint playing with the transparent and opaque qualities of different colours, techniques used by Titian and Turner. She has started to incorporate silver/copper and gold leaf into some of the paintings which gives a different play on light using the reflective quality to add another dimension.
Henrietta's works are to be found in collections in New York, Houston, Vancouver, Sydney, Perth, and Paris as well as the UK.
Check out Wimbledon Art Studios here and Henrietta's work here, remember to attend their art fair during the fall!
