Immersive design experience
Katrina spent her first five years out of college with Dena Designs in California, as one of only 2-3 employees. She learned so much about licensing, surface design, product design & layout, and technical computer skills.
Award winning design
In Katrina's time at Dena's Studio, the company was nominated twice and won Best Art Brand of the Year from the Licensing Excellence Awards - a huge honor.
Technical design skills
It's not always easy taking gouache paintings and reducing their colors down for textile screen prints. Katrina has all the technical skills needed to get files production-ready.
Best-selling baby bedding on Amazon
Katrina helped Dena create the happi by Dena line for paper goods, tabletop, quilting fabric, clothing, plushies, and baby bedding. The pink happi crib collection, sold at Babies R Us, was a top seller.
quilting fabric & baby clothes
Katrina worked on 2-3 fabric collections per year with Dena for Westminster Fibers, sold in independent quilting stores around the country. She also helped create happi baby clothes sold at Lord & Taylor.
template design & production files
Katrina excels in product design and production ready files. Her time with Dena was always bright and fun, all while never missing a deadline and giving licensors our best final product.
