<p>West coast born and matured [well mostly] in Salt Lake City, this North Bay transplant has taken Salt Lake by storm with cheeky quips and three fingers of whiskey. A chef by trade and an artist by heart, I have been drawing and painting since child hood but focused my attention on painting in the last 5 years.&nbsp; With no particular weapon of choice I&#39;ll go for anything that can be pushed around a canvas: oils, acrylics, ink, gouache, watercolor.&nbsp; Hell, I would crack open a Bic pen and use my sisters mascara brush if I needed to.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Versatility in visual art is why I love creative expression; being able to put to life all the abstract things that I can never seem to sow into a sentence. As an artist, I can feel uncomfortable&nbsp;in myself. In art, especially painting, I find a way to square my humanity and place in reality. Conversations late into the late, electric mixes of music, dinner gatherings with friends &ndash; these sources of inspiration I transform and blend into a roux of colors on canvas.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I&#39;m very excited to be a part of the Paint Nite team because we are all artists at heart. No matter how much the fear of failure holds you back all you need to do is make the first stroke on canvas and watch as your creativity unfolds in front of you.&nbsp; We all have it in us; the ladies of Paint Nite and me are going to show you just how damn creative you really are! So grab your beer, wine, shots, paintbrushes and aprons! Henry&#39;s taking you all for a fun ride!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
