imageCatherine Christenson Stenhjem was born in beautiful Winona, Minnesota.

She now resides in Scottsdale, AZ with her husband Everett and their three lovely cats: Zizzors, Zelza, and Guinness. As a young woman, Catherine spent many years living in Iran. The richness of Persian culture is evident throughout her art and her illustrated  stories. Catherine also draws inspiration from her passion for all of Earths creatures, real and imagined.


“Art, created by human hands, is a gift and a tribute to the greatest artist of all, that being Mother Nature.”
