With Xmas on the horizon, one idea for a unique gift is to commission a beautiful HOUSE PORTRAIT for your special person.

DAMIAN HENRY, Glasgow School of Art graduate, began creating home mementos during lockdown and has already pleased over 40 clients, many in Glasgow’s West End. Anniversaries, b-days, weddings, any important event also deserves celebrating. Now we all know how important our homes are, Damian’s House Portraits have become very popular. As they take some time to create, order asap.Telephone: 07901338391 or Email:  [email protected]

Damian, who works at Glasgow Print Studio, was stuck when the Print Studio closed due to the pandemic and began working on his kitchen table. Primarily a printmaker, Damian normally needs a press for his creations. But he says “The House portraits have not only kept me going, but given me a new audience. People have reacted wonderfully, often recommending me to their friends.’

During his career Damian has had over 20 solo shows in Scotland, America & Canada, including 3 in New York, so his international links in the States and Italy (his wife comes from Tuscany) have produced more commissions. His last show at Glasgow Print Studio, happily very successful and just pre-covid, focused on animals and birds as endangered species such as elephants, leopards, iguanas, hen harriers, jaguars. Less exotic but equally precious, his own 2 cats also often feature in his work, captured in deft strokes which make it all look easy and effortlessly perfect.

Damian is also exhibiting his beloved cats and dogs, horses and birds, plus West End landmarks like the Botanics and Oran Mor, alongside beautiful flower prints, with popular painter John Wetten Brown.


John Wetton Brown was a restoration architect who moved from ancient monuments and castles to painting some of its most interesting scenes. Subjects range from historic fishing villages like Pittenweem and Crail, to the landscapes of Skye and Mull, with great sweeps of mountain, moorland, highland cows, sky & sheep.


His style is bright, lively and perspectively challenge.’Squinty’ is one way of describing his highly individual approach.
