Dena Winter is a freelance production designer and prop stylist based in Brooklyn, NY.
Dena grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in a family of "theater people" and nature lovers. She studied art at Beloit College and received a bachelor's degree in Studio Art. After graduating, she worked locally in the Twin Cities as an artist and set designer. In 2019 she relocated to New York to pursue opportunities in the film industry.
Her work as a designer and stylist draws upon her background in painting and sculpture, her love of cinema, and an appreciation for physical materials. She has a meticulous hand and an artist's eye for detail. Her core inspirations are the colors, textures, and shapes found in nature.
