Biography / Artist Statement
Homer Hensley is a contemporary painter currently residing in Lubbock with his wife Lynn.
Homer has been painting for more than 50 years and has professional experience in various types of painting. He’s a 5th generation Lubbockite, although he finds plenty of inspiration from his travels abroad and throughout the U.S.
His love for art transformed when he began painting billboards for his great grandfather’s advertising agency as a kid. Growing up in the ad business, he learned the ins and outs of painting efficiently and with purpose, and continued to hone his craft while studying at Texas Tech University. As he began his career in finance and started a family with Lynn, he continued to be encapsulated by painting. He utilized and fell in love with many forms of painting from watercolors to oil and acrylics, to pencil, and from still-life to pleinair to tromplé.
He says, “My goal is to please the viewer – It doesn’t matter what the object is.”
In each of his paintings – and upon delivery – you can see his heart and passion for detail.
