  • Art and Design

    Kenzie M.

    Message from Kenzie: Major: Studio Art, concentrate in Drawing. I grew up in northwest Houston, surrounded by city-life and a melting-pot of culture and people which shaped my view on art. I discovered my passion for drawing in middle school with the initial intent on becoming a tattoo artist. I continued my love for art through my high school career and as my tastes developed, I switched focus onto wanting to go into game design and conceptual art. I was the first in my family to go away to college and study my degree, this experience of being alone and in an unfamiliar setting helped me strive to make it count and achieve what I want. I hope to continue my goals and help others strive to meet theirs, in whatever way I can.
