Henry David Potwin Art

Born in Dallas, Texas, Henry David Potwin is the oldest of three children. He first started to paint at the age of 8 years old. As a young boy, Potwin's family would summer vacation in Taos, New Mexico. During the family vacation in 1965, Potwin met artist Eric Gibberd, who became his mentor for years to come. Potwin attended the University of Houston fine arts program from 1969–74. He studied, alongside and under, a great group of artists, in a building called The Annex. Potwin's subjects range from landscapes, portraits, cityscapes to those that are personal to the artist, idiosyncratic, humorous and socially aware.
