ArtistĀ Biography

Henne’s sculpture is largely informed by anatomical studies – from simple school-house diagrams to NIH’s Visual Human project. Her work ranges from large, complex interactive installations and performances to more straightforward, discrete objects. Her work, “Suspended Self Portrait”, is in the permanent collection at the National Museum of Health and Medicine and was featured in the NIH’s exhibition and book, Dream Anatomy. She was a faculty facilitator in VCU’s da Vinci center where a collaborative team of arts, engineering, and business students worked with VCU surgeons to develop a prototype for a life like surgical trainer. Currently she is integrating many facets of her work experience as she collaborates with surgeons and engineers to develop a second set of prototype for the surgical trainer.

Currently on display in the Turnbull Conference Center:
