Stephen HendersonStephen HendersonStephen Henderson –  27th June to 3rd July

Stephen’s teenage years were spent shooting and fishing on the marshes, where he developed a keen eye for the movements and habits of wildfowl and fish. Even today, the workshop and studio at his family home look out across those very same marshes, providing a constant source of inspiration. His work may be found in Hotels, Homes and Private Collections around the world.

"My work is inspired by the native shorebirds and fish species of my locality, together with wildlife observed on holidays and travels from around the world. Carving out of pieces of found wood and Eastern White Pine, I mount my work on driftwood and natural weathered timber. I work with themes such as motherhood, courtship and predation, trying to reflect the mannerisms of individual creatures and their personalities.”
