Mouth artist and motivational speaker Henry is a young mouth-painter and motivational speaker. A rugby-playing teenager, Henry’s life was changed when an accident on holiday left him paralysed from the neck down. Soon after his accident Henry decided to adopt the attitude of “getting on with life” and that is exactly what he has done. With many high-profile fans including Piers Morgan, Thierry Henry, David Beckham, JK Rowling and Jonny Wilkinson to name a few, Henry’s first exhibition was a star-studded event. He recently appeared in a video on Arsenal FC’s YouTube page challenging England footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to a drawing contest, which he won.
Henry is a popular speaker and has been courted by the likes of the England sevens rugby squad, Saracens Rugby Club, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, Cambridge University and social inclusion and sports charity the School of Hard Knocks. CNN, BBC 2 and The Daily Telegraph have all featured Henry and The Times commissioned him to paint the cover of their Rugby World Cup special. Henry officially opened Saracens RFC’s new Allianz Park stadium, and received the Blyth Spirit Award 2016 by the Rugby Players’ Association in association with England Rugby.
