Stylish designs by a local mom

Meet Kimberly Senn of Edina.

The now-mother of two boys left her career in advertising in 2009.

During that time, she painted three canvases to hang over her baby’s crib — a triptych of a paper airplane soaring away. 

Her artwork quickly became a hit with friends and family, and Senn found herself making art — a lot of it — for a growing base of fans by 2011.

“What started out as a side hustle, creating original paintings on commission, has turned into a tremendously fun and fulfilling full-time, yet flexible, business,” said Senn, who runs her studio out of her home. 

In recent years, her Senn & Sons brand has grown beyond nursery art with other fine art prints, plus personalized growth charts, temporary tattoos, notepads and, coming this spring, games and dinnerware for kids.

Last year, Senn partnered with Blue Sky to design calendars and planners for Target stores across the country. 

Her next collection of planning products will hit Target stores in July, just in time for back to school.
