Henry Ward has been working as a full time portrait artist for over twenty years. An exhibitor at the National Portrait Gallery in the B.P. Portrait Award 2010, his painting of pioneering transplant surgeons was the largest portrait ever exhibited in the 30-year history of the Award.
 
The inclusion of the artist's painting in the National Portrait Gallery, and his role as a member of the International Fundraising Committee of the British Red Cross, led to his entering into discussions with the Charity about the necessity of a portrait to commemorate over six decades of The Queen's patronage.
 
The sitting with The Queen took place at Windsor Castle in 2015. The portrait took 11 months to complete, and was painted in secrecy in the artist's Canadian studio. The Queen graciously assented to unveil the portrait in person on October 14 at Windsor Castle. It is very rare for The Queen to unveil Her own portrait and the artist was honoured by Her unveiling of the painting, which took place in the Yellow Drawing room at Windsor Castle - the same location for Her sitting to the artist in 2015. This painting is now on permanent display at The Savoy Hotel in London. 

 
Henry Ward's work has also been exhibited at the House of Lords, Westminster, Christies of London, and he is represented in the permanent collection of the Bermuda National Gallery. The artist has had solo exhibitions at John Mitchell Fine Paintings on Bond St in London, at Tatistcheff & Co., 57 Street and 5th Avenue in New York, and is featured in numerous public and private collections in England, the United States, Canada and Bermuda. Henry Ward's painting of Her Majesty The Queen hangs on permanent loan in the Thames Foyer of the Savoy Hotel in London.
