The work not only involves beauty and mystery, but provides a visual space for our imagination to transcend its initial reality.
Henshall was born and raised in the Eastern part of the United States. After college and work in the fashion industry, she traveled to Europe and the far East, living in Auroville, South India, for two and a half years. Henshall returned to this part of the country, and following many career changes, focused in photography. She returned to Bard College to finish her degree and subsequently taught color and black and white photography in schools in Connecticut. The artist now does freelance work from her studio in the northwest corner of that state.
