Dena made two balloon sculptures in the studio, and brought in a large balloon Santa Claus.

Springfield's Dena Atchley was recently chosen to be lead character designer for the Big Balloon Build in Guildford, England this December.

The holiday-themed exhibit will involve 125,000 balloons, raising money for the Surrey Charity Network. KSMU's Ben Verstraete sat down with Dena to discuss the build, her career and the balloon art world at large.
