Since graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auckland University of Technology, Henrietta has steadily built up a name for herself as a solid New Zealand illustrator.
She has skilfully hand-drawn hands, faces, brains, glaciers and at least seven other Categories of Things, many of which have appeared on canvases in shows all over New Zealand, Australia, London and New York; some of which have appeared on her own successful line of hand-printed t-shirts; some of which have appeared on t-shirts made by other hands (namely those of Parinto and Barker’s Men’s Clothing); and some more of which emerge from the pages of fine print publications such as BITE, Metro and Sunday Magazines. She has a varied list of clients, including Flying Nun Records, Amnesty International, Four Paws Media and Vice Magazine.
Henrietta has developed the timeless style that can only be achieved by having occasionally dipped one’s paintbrush accidentally in one’s coffee, but also combines tradition with less hazardous digital methods, all of which has resulted in an extensive, mutable, and memorable body of work.
