She was born and raised outside of Chicago, IL. She received her BFA from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee in 2009, where she focused on both design and painting. Dena currently works as an artist and educator while living in Milwaukee, WI. She is also a founding partner at Odvant Creative, a small design studio.

Artist Statment

Dena Nord blends together design thinking with an organic process to create vivid abstract paintings. Her artwork brings statements to walls by offering visual playgrounds for the eye. When composing paintings, Dena works in a variety of mediums with a diverse set of color palettes. Her plant-like layouts seem to radiate with rhythm on the canvas. Her goal is to move your eye around the work and let the viewer find his or her own imagery within the shapes.
