About the speaker
Roxanna “Roxy” Hendrickson graduated from the Legal Studies program at Advanced Technologies Academy (“A-Tech”). She met her future business parter and husband, Logan Hendrickson while at A-Tech. She graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a degree in Criminal Justice. Roxy also holds a Juris Doctor from the William S. Boyd School of Law and has been a member of the Nevada State Bar since 2016. While Roxy was pursuing her legal studies, she co-founded of OneFortyThree; a studio focusing on creating handmade, minimal, functional and original lighting and furniture in Southern Nevada. Today, OneFortyThree goods live in the homes, hotels and restaurants of hundreds of customers all over the globe. OneFortyThree began in 2010 as a blog about a half-built cabin on the outskirts of Las Vegas that Roxy and her husband were finishing. This was a passion project for Roxy and her husband Logan. It was also a creative outlet from the grueling demands of her legal studies. Along the way, Roxy & Logan documented the various projects and fixtures they created for their new home. Eventually, they began receiving inquiries to recreate some of the pieces they had created for their home and OneFortyThree’s online shop began. Today, the husband-and-wife team has outgrown their Etsy storefront. It is now a 6-person force to be reckoned with, bringing their visions to life out of a bonafide workshop in the beautiful town of Henderson, Nevada. Nearly a decade of sharpening their skills means they’ve significantly upped their game. Every piece is still created completely by hand. Each piece is human-made with care, rooted in the idea of taking a space and making it special with something truly one of a kind. In the summer of 2019, Roxy and her husband introduced their latest venture, All For Our Country. All For Our Country, a nod to the Nevada State Motto, is the official brick-and- mortar for OneFortyThree’s lighting and furniture. It is located within the historic Fergusons Motel. Roxy & Logan have also gathered items and handmade goods from other makers and artists from around the country. Every item was selected with care and with the Southwest in mind. Their goal is to always stay true to bringing products that are handmade or produced by small shops, just like theirs.
