Thank you for supporting Moonlit Mornings, original art and apparel promoting mental wellness.

Lee Christenson is an artist, musician, and mental health advocate based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.  Her paintings and photography offer unique views of nature and the cycle of life and death.  With the support of family and friends, Lee hopes to expand the Moonlit Mornings brand so she may pursue a Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling.

Lee's affinity for the arts as a child provided opportunities for her to create the world she wished for, with what she had, right where she was.  Visual arts were a therapeutic tool in managing generalized anxiety and major depressive disorders, and as a teenager, she found her voice as a singer/songwriter.  Her passion for music led her to the Arts High School at the Perpich Center for Arts Education (class of 2004), where young artists and performers from across Minnesota introduced her to different ideas and opened her spiritual worldview. 

Lee's search for wellness and purpose led her to study therapeutic massage after high school.  In 2006, she spent 3 months in Seattle, Washington and the Olympic Penninsula, then returned to her hometown of Maple Grove to be a wellness consultant and massage therapist.  She enrolled in general education courses at North Hennepin Community College, then transferred to St. Cloud State University and graduated in 2013 with a BA in Psychology, Emphasis in Child Development, and a Minor in Music.  She and her two cats returned to Minneapolis and accepted an administrative position with a nonprofit human services organization, with plans to complete an MA in Clinical Counseling at a later time.  She found a house, adopted two dogs, and married her life partner, Kris.

Lee dreams of promoting mental wellness and making psychology accessible to everyone.  Her works of art In 2018, Lee organized a portfolio of select paintings and photography and launched the Moonlit Mornings brand.  She launched her store on Etsy in January 2019, and is exploring production partners for printed apparel, stationary, and household goods. 

And today, Lee needs your help.  Student debts and living expenses continue to delay enrollment in a master's program.  Becoming a Moonlit Mornings patron will help Lee and Kris make that dream come true.

Thank you for your support.
