C.A. was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland; the son of a British military man and a Peruvian mother. He was always encouraged from a very early age to follow his creativity and made aware that Creating honoured our Creation. His mother’s spiritual devotion and father’s unyielding devotion to her was to have a tremendous effect on his life.
Tribal ancestry of both parents is evident of CA's vision quest and lifelong Credo. Quechua, the Inca people of Truth and the Celtic, Irish determination instilled the pride, awareness, imagination and inquisitive nature, which became his subconscious driving force.
By the age of eight Henry was recognized and regarded as an Artist.
In Orillia Ontario where the family settled in September of 1957, C.A. would find many influences and friends in his vocation. He was brought up in a strict environment from family to schooling, learning much of traditional values and customs.
At fourteen CA met Yudon Stanton, a wonderfully exhilarating Canadian Artist, whose patient yet stern ways evoked a great kinship. Together they talked for hours and CA was so impressed by the sheer volume of his work that filled his home. Yudon was never too tired to draw and paint even though he was tethered to a wheelchair with MS.
Henry also met Ada Torrence, another great Canadian Artist, who he respected as a Woman apart. They met at her Studio home from time to time. Henry years later would sculpt a great northern pine tree , from one of her silk screen prints on her memorial.
C.A. has been represented by Perivale Gallery since 2014.
