DENISE KNUDSON
designer/photographer

Denise had a deep love of horses, drawing and painting, so she got herself a degree in graphic design. Denise started working for North Woods as an illustrator and designer in 2005, where she quickly developed a reputation for her extraordinary creative ability and grasp of both traditional media and the latest digital wizardry.  Denise designs powerful print materials, logos, displays and websites. She has exceptional talent as a photographer and has excelled in shooting everything from architecture, to portraits, to products and landscapes. ​After spending a few years in Colorado, we are excited to have Denise back with us in Washington.

“I work to satisfy an inner need to portray beauty as I sense and see it, and to channel that beauty into project excellence for the clients we serve.”
