Ian Henderson  DCA


Ian Henderson lives and works in New South Wales. He was trained as a Fine artist/painter in the United Kingdom and came to Australia with his family in 1972.


As a professional artist he has won many awards and held significant positions in the United Kingdom, Canada and in Australia. He was the first artist to be employed by a UK new town development corporation, and was the fifth Gulbenkian Fellow in Painting at Keele University. In Canada he took up the position of first Artist in Residence at Brock University in Ontario. In Australia he became Chief Graphic Designer for  CSIRO, and later held a consultancy position in visual arts for Brisbane’s South Bank re-development scheme. For a brief period Ian worked at the historic Port Arthur site in Tasmania as their artist and subsequently showed major paintings of that period at Hobart’s Salamanca Collection.


Ian has lectured at a number of art schools in the UK and Australia. He has worked in interior, graphic design and architecture in addition to his fine art activities. He holds a doctorate in Creative Arts from the University of Wollongong and was in charge of all Visual Arts & Design within the Faculty of Arts at the University of New England for nine years.


Ian’s paintings are held in many public collections in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia. He has been described as a figure and landscape painter in all media, and major Australian exhibitions of his paintings have taken place in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Hobart. His paintings are held within a number of regional galleries, including those in Burnie, Cowra, Muswellbrook, Stanthorpe, Murray Bridge and Taree. He is also represented in the History Trust of South Australia and the National Film and Sound Archive, and in the UK within the UK’s Public Catalogue Foundation as well as within several UK universities and public collections.


A major exhibition of his new collage, drawing and print work will be shown at the fFyre Gallery in Braidwood, New South Wales in 2020.
