About Kris

My name is Kris Heding and I’m an artist and graphic designer based in Minneapolis, MN. This blog is to update about my art and graphic design work, and is connected to my website, www.krisheding.com.

I’ve been creating art as long as I can remember, and I love dabbling in just about every medium. I’m not very good at pottery, though. I like to do crafty things as well, like knitting, cross-stitching, sewing, scrapbooking, beading and just about everything in-between.

My two biggest loves are art and music, and they often come together in my art and in other areas of my life. I love all kinds of music and all kinds of art, so my work is pretty eclectic.

The people and things that inspire me the most are my mum, Andy Warhol, David Bowie, Thom Yorke, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Franz Ferdinand (the band, not the archduke), 80s new wave music (and the bands who created it), Minneapolis, Lady Gaga, modernist design, Russian avant-garde, Dada, Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Manic Street Preachers, punk rock, Minimalism, Constructivism, and so many other things I can’t even begin to list.

I live in Minneapolis with my two guinea pigs (Vincent and Sam), my two corn snakes (Alfred and Jarvis), and my three cats (Jack, Oreo, and Simon).
