 Curriculum Vitae


Henrik Soderstrom is an artist, designer, and idea enthusiast. Raised in Rochester, New York by an exuberant Californian and a Swedish visionary, he grew up sanding historic floorboards and eating green peppers like apples from the vegetable garden.

After absorbing inspiration and general excitement about life at the Rhode Island School of Design, he went on to work with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project, designing the set for their production of Leyli & Majnun, which opened in 2009 at the Lincoln Center in New York, and creating album artwork for their Grammy-nominated recording Off the Map.

Henrik has enjoyed collaborating with the Society for Freshwater Science, the Music of Difference Project (designing the artwork for their Grammy-nominated album), the Knights Orchestra, the Attacca Quartet, Thomas Warfield, and FuturPointe dance to produce shows and performances. He has been an artist-in-residence with I-Park Enclave, Stonecry, and the Julia and David White Artist Colony, and the Roger Tory Peterson Institute, and now lives in Indiana with his brilliant wife Dottie, where they both teach at Indiana Wesleyan University.
