Portrait Of A (Portland) Artist

Andrea and I share more than a name. A past life spent at Nike, our current iterations as Portland creatives, our adoration for our respective fathers and the loss of both of those amazing men last year.

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to while away a morning in her fabulous (and enviable) studio, trying to capture for her new website, Andrea Henning Design, the essence of her spirit, her creative space, and her amazing ability as both a graphic designer and fine artist.

I have her to thank for my logos, creative collaboration, and so much more. It takes a lot to put yourself out into the world as an artist, especially when you pour so much of your own personal self into the process, exposing all your nooks and crannies for the world and clients to see. You know the quote "it takes a village to raise a child"?  Yeah, that applies to making it as a creative too, and I'm so grateful to have her in my village.
