Meet Patty Henderson

Patty Henderson can be called an emerging artist since she began painting in 2002. But, to be honest,its a poor artist who isn't aware of their developing process of growth, whether they have painted for 10 years or 50. It has less do with the length of time you have painted then to how great your love of painting and commitment is, and Patti has an abundance of both of these qualities.

Patty knew where she was heading and it wasn't until after her first watercolour lesson, when she put her works in a show that she experienced the joy of validation from those who discovered her artistic side.

Patty is a great niece of the famous early Canadian artist, Homer Watson - who has long called "Uncle Homer" by family members. She works in a medical laboratory, she has 2 grown sons. Patty lives in Wallaceburg, Ontario.

She has fast tracked her painting journey by painting pet portraits and doing house commissions. Patty really gets off on painting animals. Nature resonates within her soul and her long term goal sees her painting in her retirement and building a solid collection of works to help her land her first gallery.

Why are we not surprised to learn that Patty has inherited great artistic genes? Patty is related to the late, famous, artist Homer Watson. She says that it was well over 30 years ago when her father last saw "Uncle Homer." He was told by Homer to pick out a picture which he could have one day. Patty says that her father couldn't accept the painting because it was an inappropriate subject for a family home. Oh my.
