Hensen will lead an artist’s talk and workshop on Saturday, December 2nd from 12-2pm. For more information or to register for the class, visit

Hensen’s work creates creatures uncomfortable in their own skin and seeking guidance for conflicts constructed within their own heads. The show features intricate woodcut prints that attempt to examine social anxieties stemming from behavior, belonging, fads, and food.
