A Wood Working Woman

I had the pleasure of shooting Alex Henderson, of Henderson Dry Goods, for the current issue of House and Home magazine. I really love her work, especially her mirrors and her new line of trays. She works out of a garage turned workshop at the back of her home. A pretty great spot to hang out.


A girl and her tools.

 



You can find her work at Walrus and Provide, plus several other shops. See her website for a complete list! 

If you're in Vancouver, enjoy the slushy rain! Back soon.

I had the pleasure of meeting Alex when I bought one of her mirrored necklaces from Walrus. I love it and wear it all the time. Love your shots - capture her art perfectly!
