Mia was raised in Newport, RI and currently lives in Pittsburgh,
PA. She studied art history at the University of Siena, Italy and minored in an art concentration at Georgetown University where she received her BSL in 1997. A decade later Henry began pursuing a career as an oil painter.
Her current work is almost exclusively oil on canvas. She thrives on the materials themselves, marveling at the way they inform her - how they bend and flow depending on the tools she uses. The texture and movement of the paint inspires Mia’s work and in this way there is always a visible relationship between the medium and the art.
