Desiree Christenson – Small Town Whimsy


Painting and crafting in her grandma’s sewing room is one of Desiree’s earliest and favorite memories. Following in her grandma’s and mother’s footsteps, Desiree has always been busy creating art. From jewelry making to re-purposing to painting, she describes most of her art as whimsical and eclectic. She especially enjoys experimenting with acrylic paint on canvas, wood, and glass.

Desiree also loves to help others tap into their artistic side. She has led paint parties and classes for all ages and ability levels. Groups of friends, coworkers, and 4-H club members have all ended up successful artists under Desiree’s step-by-step guidance.

Originally from Northern California, Desiree now calls Aurora, Nebraska home. She and her husband, Phil, enjoy camping, fishing, live music, making barn quilts, and traveling.
