While attending school for design, Dena took numerous painting and art history courses. She has been using painting to stay fresh as a designer. Currently pursuing both fine art and design careers, Dena loves the challenge and can’t get enough of either. During the day, she works for the Milwaukee Art Museum on their in-house design team and at night, she focuses on refining her painting style.
Dena Nord is currently pursuing fine art and design careers. During the day she works as an in-house Designer for the Milwaukee Art Museum, and at night she focuses on her paintings to stay fresh as a designer. When painting, Dena focuses on combining a variety of textures and painting techniques. Her compositions join together mostly organic and structural shapes to create patterns and vivid colors that seem to radiate with rhythm.
Dena loves the challenges of designing and painting and is now experimenting with the latest in software and app development to create new forms of fine art. Using augmented reality she tags the surface of her paintings to reveal time-lapse process videos of the piece or extras like music and animation. More information about the Dena Nord App and how it works with her paintings is available on her website.
