About Dena, The Artist

Put even the smallest paintbrush in the right hands and watch a new world of color and design burst forth. It’s the world as only Dena sees it: fresh, inviting, and brimming with joy. Award-winning artist, illustrator, TV host, author, and widely syndicated newspaper columnist, Dena is a leading product and lifestyle designer whose signature blend of rapturous colors and prints warms hearts – and homes – the world over.

It’s a success story that started when Dena was a new graduate of UCLA and an aspiring artist in New York City who first tried her hand at designing textiles. Now, dozens of companies around the world feature her distinctive artworks on a wealth of products, from apparel, toys and books to gifts, accessories, and home décor. The list keeps growing every time Dena picks up her paintbrush. That’s the secret of Dena Designs’ remarkable success; each and every one of the studio’s designs comes from the hand of the artist herself.

Founded by Dena and her husband Dan more than 20 years ago, Dena Designs is an internationally acclaimed, full-service design and merchandising studio that creates some of the most powerful best-sellers in the world
