About the Artists

Mia Stegner is a freelance songwriter, filmmaker, artist, mental health advocate, and proud best friend and business partner to her cat Cléo.

Mia began painting in 2020 to calm her mind, pass some time, and engage some new creative muscles. Cléo enjoys watching her work, so far managing to avoid any real catastrophes despite her interest in stealing paint brushes and habit of batting at works-in-progress.
