Henry is a self-taught artist that uses gears to create hand-crafted generative art, working primarily with ink, pencil, pastel and watercolour.

Experimenting with both traditional and digital mediums for approximately 15 years, Henry’s first interest was portraiture. It was late 2021 when he reintroduced himself to a basic spirograph set.

Drawing with gears married Henry’s passion for the tactile process of drawing and painting with his love for the emergent surprises inherent in generative art.

Since then, he has amassed a collection of gears and developed techniques to utilise them in unique ways, transforming the basic shapes they create into something else altogether.
