PLEASE SEE AVAILABLE ARTWORK BELOW
David Morrison Reid Henry came from a family of painters and learned much from his artist
father George Henry. He was born in Ceylon now Sri Lanka and spent the first 10 years of his life there. Later on he moved to England where he attended Colchester Royal Grammar and then Mount Radford School in Exeter.
He was conscripted in 1940 and found himself training as an officer cadet in the Royal Tank Corps at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. This is where he met his famous tutor G E Lodge who lived close by at Hawk House, Camberley. David learnt much from Lodge and consequently his interest in all things hawks and falcons flourished. He developed a superb technique and his work was renowned for its accuracy and detail. His paintings are eagerly sought after by those who love bird art and in particular his pictures that depict his great love of raptors.
