Christopher Hensher


I am a painter and printmaker working from a studio at my home on the North Downs on the southern outskirts of London. I also regularly work elsewhere alongside fellow-artists, including at plein-air locations. Oils and watercolour are my favoured painting media and I use a wide variety of drawing methods. For subject matter, I concentrate mainly on people, portraits and landscapes. I make my etchings and drypoints in the open access facilities at The Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea and Bainbridge Print Studio Croydon but also am fortunate to have a lithographic press in my own studio. My work has appeared in national exhibitions including the Royal Watercolour Society Open 2017 and 2023 at Bankside Gallery and the University of Cambridge Summer Open 2019.
