Artist Interview: Dena Haden

Words of the day: playful. organic. being. transformation. quiet.

New Bedford, Massachusetts based fiber artist and sculptor Dena Haden on the program! Dena and I share some good art talk about her inspirations, transitions, and coming full-circle back to sculptural sensibilities she experimented with as a child. 

Dena also shares a couple quotes from her growing archive of collected thoughts by nature and spirituality writers. Listen in for more, especially for which artist from history Dena would like to speak with about art!
