|Joe Hendry||Biography: Artist, Joe Hendry began his professional life as an interior designer, having studied design in Glasgow for four years in the late eighties. Following a successful career in corporate interiors, Joe decided to concentrate on what he really loved and began painting full time in January 2005.
The graphic element of Joe's design background shows through in much of his work. Since 2005 there have been many successes. Joe's work was picked up early by a New York gallery curator and a buyer for Warner Brothers Studios in addition to being featured in the fifth anniversary Blondie Review. 2005 also saw a contract being signed with Chaucer Press and in July of 2005, Joes piece To Kiss Marilyn not only appeared in the homage to Marilyn Monroe by Roger Taylor entitled Marilyn In Art , but was chosen to promote the book on its release. In August 2007, three Joe Hendry original paintings appeared in Mem Mehmets book Diana In Art which has been released internationally. Mem Mehmet also compiled the well received Madonna In Art. At its release, Joe was not painting but Mem has since purchased an original Madonna piece for his own private collection.
2008 saw Joe Hendry winning a place in the annual Lauderdale House art exhibition in addition to a second solo exhhibition at Park Gallery in Glasgow and being involved in The Contemporary Scottish Art Sale at McTears Auctioneers.
