Henry has been inspired by the local landscape of the Burren and from the Atlantic Coast to the Clare Glens bordering Tipperary and Limerick.. These rugged landscapes feature strongly in his work, and he continues to carve his niche among the higher echelons of Irish Art.
A contemporary artist of substance, his work is now included in many public and private collections. Henry describes himself as a traditionalist.
