Our Team

Katie Henry - Founder, Director and CEO

Katie Henry is the founder, director and CEO 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.
