Hendrickson was born and grew up in Columbus, Ohio of Italian immigrant parents. She moved to California in 1960 and now is Professor Emeritus of English and Women's Studies in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Feminist Art Movement of the 1970's opened her own creative impulses; she began studying art at age 44 and received an MA in painting in 1982 from San Jose State University.
She is an "outsider" artist who works in oils, woodblock prints, B&W photography, and computer photocollage. Her work is realistic / surrealistic, visionary, and autobiographical.
