Chase Henson was born in Phoenix, AZ in 1988. At the age of 4, his parents moved to Provo,UT. He lived in the same house, off and on, for almost 20 years (sorry mom!) He started attending Salt Lake Community College’s Aviation Maintenance program at age 22. He started doodling just to keep his mind busy during class. After a year and half of school and an internship later, he realized that being an aircraft mechanic was not his passion and didn't want that for his future. Pursuing a career in Art was the only logical next step…. right??
Around the age of 23, he switched majors and started attending Utah Valley University’s Illustration program. Around this time, he left mainstream religion and its ideas of god but became immediately fascinated with its impact on the Human race and Society today. A few years into the program he was doing research for a personal painting he was working on of a woman in an Indian marketplace. In his research, he became curious about the country's current religion and its history. He naturally dived head first into Hindu philosophy and most importantly, its mythology.
After spending countless hours reading stories and discovering hundreds of gods and goddesses, his interest became a very real obsession. Rediscovering personal spirituality, through Hindu mythology, yoga and the arts. It became an unshakable obsession that filled so many unseeable voids in his life. Hinduism is one of the oldest religions in the world and has such a rich, beautiful history. Its stories are endless and they cease to amaze and inspire.
