After many years in the corporate world, Henry is now immersed in his passion: modern British art. He can be found most days extolling the virtues of painters such as Ruskin Spear and Mark Gertler as well as less well-remembered artists, such as Nicholas Evans and Maurice Wade. When not championing artists, he is likely to be re-reading The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov or listening to Frank Zappa. He has a degree in science from the Open University.
