Henry Watson was 15 when he started wood carving at Livonia High School in an art class. He watched his instructor carving, decided he wanted to master the craft, grabbed a screwdriver, and went to work. It did not take him long to discover that a screwdriver would not work, so he picked up a chisel and has used a mallet and chisel ever since to create three-dimensional works of art on old cypress that have people coming from all over the U.S., bringing old photographs for Henry to recreate on wood.
When Henry was 17 a major event happened, when he meet a painter from Chicago who trained him to view nature and objects in three-dimensionally.
Now Mr. Henry is a well known artist in the area being in many local magazines, talk shows, news papers. Many of his works can be seen in New Orleans and in Plantations and Galleries.
Many of Henry's works is even collected in private collections of well known people, such as one being painted for Gov Foster's home, "Oaklawn, the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge, old plantations and antebellum homes.
