Glasgow based artist, Joe Hendry began his professional life as an interior designer, having studied design in Glasgow for four years in the late eighties. Following a successful career in corporate interiors, Joe decided to concentrate on what he really loved and began painting full time in January 2005. The graphic element of Joe’s design background shows through in much of his work. Since 2005 there have been many successes. Joe’s work was picked up early by a New York gallery curator and a buyer for Warner Brothers Studios in addition to being featured in the fifth anniversary “Blondie Review”. As the year progressed Joe was approached by several publishers and in addition to having a range of sporting prints published, he has recently signed to a nationwide publisher who will have exclusive rights to selected Joe Hendry originals. 2005 also saw a contract being signed with Chaucer Press and in July of 2005, Joe’s piece “To Kiss Marilyn” not only appeared in the homage to Marilyn Monroe by Roger Taylor entitled “Marilyn In Art ”, but was chosen to promote the book on it’s release. In August 2007, three Joe Hendry original paintings appeared in Mem Mehmet’s book “Diana In Art” which has been released internationally. Mem Mehmet also compiled the well received “Madonna In Art”. At it’s release, Joe was not painting but Mem has since purchased an original Madonna piece for his own private collection. Joe Hendry artwork was also used by Sony Pictures Television to dress the set of actress Heather Locklear's character in the TV Series "Franklin & Bash".
