Robert Henderson

Bam, Boom, Splat

Being of Scottish descent, Robert competed in Scottish Highland Games for 15 years in Scotland, Canada, Iceland, and across the USA. He is a three time Masters World Championship Lightweight Caber champion with awards in 2008, 2012, and 2017.

Robert began his journey to becoming a quasi-semi artist in 2010 by dropping a broken caber on to puddles of paint. After experimenting, he refined his technique to create various looks and blends of colors. Robert frames his own art, and states, ”I have always been somewhat artistic, just never in any organized capacity, just created whatever made me happy”.
