CEDARBURG, WI: The Cedarburg Cultural Center is proud to announce it will be hosting Milwaukee artist Dena Nord for the month of May as its Artist in Residence.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2009, Nord has been working as a graphic and web designer. She is well-versed in print design and has some web, animation and marketing experience. While attending school for design, Dena took numerous painting and art history courses. She uses painting as a way to stay fresh as a designer.  Currently, the artist is pursuing both fine art and design careers. She 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 teaches at Splash Studio: A Painting Bar in Milwaukee’s Third Ward on the nights and weekends.  Nord spends her free-time developing her painting style, playing with app development and spending time with friends.
