Henry LaMarr was born LaMarr Henry on a crispy cold December morning in Hollywood California. If you ask his parents, they’d tell you he began to draw before he could walk or talk…Well, they’d actually say “I can't remember that far back, but it sounds about right” Always taking a special interest in visual and performing arts, Henry began to participate in many acting programs and drawing exhibits in middle school (32nd St. USC Magnet) and also joined the mural club, helping the school paint it's murals and wall decorations
From there, he began to develop his talent around illustration art, constantly creating paintings and pencil sketches. Wanting to pursue art as a life long profession, he began drawing caricatures and portraits for his High School News paper,“The Yankee Bugle” after enrolling in the schools Journalism class.
After graduating from High School (Alexander Hamilton HS Communication Arts Academy), he entered into El Camino College with a major in Communication Arts and later enrolled into The Academy of Arts College with a major in Illustrative Arts/pursuing his masters in the field.
In 2006 He began his business “UltimateArtistry” and in 2011 revamped things with adding "HenrysArt" along with "Henrys Illustrations" which produces and connects his art work with others. Since then, his work has been featured on two published book covers,has been displayed in the Texas City Hall Entertainment Hall of Fame as part of a tribute to the golden age of Television and can be seen in community churches, schools, and homes abroad.(Writing this as humbly as he knows how)
Henry has only began to start his artistic journey and looks forward to progressing, growing, and sharing what he loves with the world-ART-in all it's many shapes and forms
