After a brief and volatile spell at Art School, Harry studied Fashion and Textiles at Bristol and spent two decades working in fashion. In 2007 his life was changed by a simple question he was asked by an old school friend at a party - “How’s the art going?” - and he began to draw and paint around existing commitments, often working late into the night in a frenzied attempt to make up for lost time. The pieces he produced around this time had much in common with folk art: whimsical portraits of British wildlife that were designed to appeal to the general public and not to the elite of the art establishment. Based in rural Somerset, Harry is a fierce defender of the countryside and wildlife that inspires much of his work, and he often raises environmental concerns. He has contributed to projects with various charities and environmental groups from Keep Britain Tidy to Greenpeace. His work is increasingly prized by collectors from all walks of life, and his admirers include BBC TV presenter Julia Bradbury and the late Jamaican record producer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.
