Jen Christiansen is a veteran who has operated her mobile painting business since 2011. She grew her company from the ground up after falling on hard times in order to support her family. Despite the obstacles she faced, she managed to start the first mobile art company in Tucson. Jen’s experience proves that with a little hard work and dedication, anything is possible as she now runs multiple art businesses with passion and grace.

Arte Bella was intended to inspire others too by inviting everyone to see what possibilities await when you are open and take on a positive attitude. With patience and perseverance, we have created something beautiful that everyone can enjoy—on and off the canvas!
