Harry was born in a small Hampshire village where a life-long love of the English countryside was forged. His family were builders, but having shown a talent for art he moved west to study, graduating from Bristol with First Class Honours. Following a relocation to rural Somerset he became inspired by local folklore - and drawing on influences as diverse as John Emms, Howard Hodgkin and Beatrix Potter, began painting extraordinary anthropomorphic portraits.
The characters seem to follow in comic/sporting tradition of Cecil Aldin or Harry Neilson - but on closer inspection reveal a somewhat darker side of the English rural idyll. Harry shows his work at galleries in the South West and beyond. In 2012 the first in a series of limited edition prints was produced as a means of reaching a larger audience. His work now hangs in homes as far afield as the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
