a little background
A lifelong creator, doodler and tinkerer originally from Wisconsin, Kim Senn spent her 20s roaming the world working in advertising, a career that took her from Minnesota to NYC, where she met her husband, then London and finally San Francisco, where her two sons were born. Shortly after her second son was born, Kim and her husband Marty settled in Minneapolis to return to their Midwestern roots and perfect their thick Minnesota accents.
With her relentless creative spirit not dampened by adulthood, Kim refocused her creative energy to painting the instant her first son started napping. Foregoing acceptance to graduate design programs at Parsons and FIDM to attempt a path of creative entrepreneurship, she officially founded Senn & Sons in San Francisco in 2011. After finding a supportive audience for her original art, fine art prints, personalized wall hangings and baby products, Kim began partnering with larger companies to share her original designs with a broader audience. Her first partnership was with Blue Sky to bring a line of planners and calendars to Target stores nationwide and they continue to create new, colorful collections of colorful products for Target and other major retailers across the country.
