ABOUT THE ARTIST

Joshua Hendry is a professional artist and art instructor living in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina.  His passion for animals flows into his artwork and affects change through benevolent giving to animal well-fare organizations.

Josh was born in Sebastian, Florida and grew up near Asheville in Montreat, North Carolina.  Most of his free time as a child was spent exploring nature with his yellow lab Alex.  These adventures inspired Josh's wonder of animals with the power they have to balance nature and comfort the human psyche.  Josh's artwork is rooted in a deep respect for wild animals in nature and domesticated animals in our homes.

The artist is a graduate of the College of Design at North Carolina State University.  His professional work has been featured in Colored Pencil Magazine, Modern Dog Magazine and on FOX-8 News with Emily Byrd.  He is the Official Pet Portrait Artist of the Greensboro Grasshoppers and his portraits of Miss Babe Ruth and Master Yogi Berra (black labs) are proudly displayed at the Grasshoppers Ballpark.  Additionally, he is an art instructor at High Point Friends School and gladly accepts aspiring artists for private instruction.  Please use our contact link to request times and rates.
