2/28/11 A quote from Art Talk Chicago's coverage of Swimsuit Edition: "Henderson delivers a devastating titty twister to the traditional stereotypes of
gender roles, using hunky beefcakes and catty, manicured babes poke fun at fairy tales, religious myth, and most of all, men and women. She
just might be the pea under the mattress that gets today's princess culture to get its lazy ass out of bed and find out what's the matter...or
could, if they would get out there and see some damn art. I'll be keeping my eye on her work in the future." Read the rest of the article here!
