CONTEMPORARY WALL ART
Celia Henderson LRPS
Celia uses her photographs of flower images to create contemporary wall art on print, canvas, metal and acrylic. Celia also submits to stock libraries and is a successful seller of not just flower and abstract images, but general and current event photography.
Three new exhibitions for 2016 will be in May and June at Cranleigh Arts Centre where I will be exhibiting my flower images alongside the paintings from the Royal Horticultural Society with exhibits from the Herbarium at RHS Wisley. I am also exhibiting for the first time at Chelsea Town Hall in July at the Parallax Art Fair - this is an international art fair and well worth a visit. See exhibitions page for more details.
Celia also prints her images to silk, cotton and voile fabric for interior design projects and has a range of deckchair canvas slings. Her work has the objective of capturing the beauty, shape and intricate detail of organic and botanical subjects seen through the photographer's macro lens.
She is one of Sony’s Advocate photographers (since 2009) and in her role as a Sony Advocate has run workshops and given lectures on macro and flower photography at the 2012 Sony World Photography Awards in Somerset House, London, the Edinburgh University Photographic Society and “Focus on Imaging” show at the NEC Birmingham.
Between 2009 - 2013 Celia was the administrator of the Arundel Gallery Trail, one of the original Open Houses Art Trails representing over 100 artists in 60 Arundel venues.
She has had a range of 16 limited editions, distributed by Buckingham Fine Arts. Celia’s work continues to be commissioned by interior designers to provide images for use in domestic residences and show home developments. Her work has appeared in TV Channel 5 room make-over programmes and was featured at the NEC Grand Design Show. She exhibits regularly in East and West Sussex galleries and venues, including the London Affordable Art Show and her work is purchased by private collectors.
Celia lives in Arundel with her husband and two daughters. She is an IT Trainer and Lecturer in Computing and involved with promoting art projects for school fundraising opportunities.
