Our Team

Katie Henry

Katie Henry is the Director of Art In Offices, which she founded in 2012. She studied Fine Art Sculpture at Central Saint Martins, and was then Vice President of Students’ Union University of the Arts London. She also has a Masters in Arts Administration and Management from Birkbeck College, University of London, and has completed an accelerator course for creative entrepreneurs. Katie is an active member of the Association of Women Art Dealers.

Katie's vision has always been to make art available to everyone. She has spent the past few years challenging the perception that only FTSE 100 companies can afford art, and has made it her mission to encourage companies of any size to put original art on their office walls by making it affordable. She's a firm believer in art increasing workplace productivity, and the power of art to reflect a company's brand values.

Katie works closely with a select handful of artists ranging from emerging talent to established investment artists like YBA's. Katie has a great eye for spotting emerging talent, and has worked with artists who have gone on to win art prizes, and have solo shows at museums. She is also well known amongst international galleries and has a wide network of fellow art dealers and gallerists.

Patrick Shutt

Patrick is Art in Offices' Administrator extraordinaire. He's our office lynchpin who liaises with the artists, keeps the website up and running, organises shipping and logistics as well as contracts and insurance. If it's administration, it's Patrick's realm.

Patrick comes from an auction background, where he set up an Arms and Armour fair with a colleague, and has worked in auction houses since he graduated, until he came to us that is!

He loves classical history, speaks a bit of Latin and Greek and spent the first few years of his life in Asia.

Cerise Washington

Cerise works with Art in Offices' Director Katie Henry to advise clients on art for their work spaces. She specialises in art sales, rentals and subscriptions and enabling companies to benefit from art no matter what their size or budget.

She is a well-traveled professional with a Fine Art, Design, and Communications background, and is an active Arts and Social Media Brand Blogger and is a recent graduate of the Christie's Education Art History course passing with High Distinction.

Prior to Christie's Education in London, Cerise has had eighteen years of Middle Eastern experience living in Dubai, Beirut, and Kuwait and worked within the Advertising and TV sector as a Graphic Designer and Art Director. She has worked for Ogilvy, Orbit Showtime Network UAE, Dell Computers and Porsche Middle East, and recently spent part of her career creating Business Development for the UK and Middle East region.

Bob Henry

Bob is our financial director and strategist. He keeps an overall eye on the company cash flow and advises us on how to best use our hard-earned profits.

Bob has a 47-year history working in finance. He has worked for Midland Bank (now HSBC), GLC, Matrix Group, and spent the last third of his career as a founding partner of Mobeus Equity Limited.

Bob is a history lover and likes a random fact, the weirder the better. He's a world-traveller, a gourmande, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of classic cars.

Catherine Loewe

Catherine Loewe is Art in Offices' consultant art curator, and advises us on established artists for our clients to collect and invest in.
