Keith Hensby

Keith Hensby Image
Keith Hensby went to Lincoln School of Art and gained a national diploma in design and, following National Service, worked in the publicity department of Perkins Engines in Peterborough. He then moved to a Surrey-based advertising company where he served as art director and illustrator for several years before returning to Rutland where he continued as a freelance illustrator.

Living in the Rutland village of Barrowden, Keith has a range of different styles in his armoury, as you might expect of an illustrator - some akin to the old Railway Posters, and others much more literal and representational, with others in-between! There are artists in all counties of Britain, but very few possess the raw talent and innate 'knowing' of when things look 'right'. Keith has it, and although somewhat unsung as a gallery painter, he produces compelling work, well worthy of being thought of alongside some of the best in the country.

Keith paints in two water-based mediums - acrylic and gouache - and handles both with great dexterity, and his paintings speak for themselves.
