An award-winning artist for over 20 years, Dena’s paintings have been exhibited in regional, national, and international shows, such as Birds in Art at the Leigh-Yawkey Woodson Museum and national traveling show. She received her training at the Loveland Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Students League of Denver, and the Scottsdale Artists School, where she was selected for the prestigious Wade Fairchild Memorial Scholarship. Dena was honored to be selected as one of 120 international artists out of 5000 applicants for the film, “Loving Vincent”. “Like Van Gogh, Dena feels that her painting is not about copying reality; I want to paint with passion to evoke emotion.” Dena is currently represented by Hunter-Wolff Gallery in Colorado Springs. She also enjoys inspiring others through teaching. She lives and paints in Colorado Springs, CO.
