« about the artist »
— IN SHORT ——————–
I am inspired by color, shape & line.
I love typography & design, FPS’s, books, animals & grilled cheese sandwiches + tomato soup.
I am over half way through completing my double major in Art & Graphic Design/Communications.
My favorite color is yellow & my favorite number is six.
I believe in unicorns AND dragons. Yeah.
I wear moccasins & skinny jeans & collect far to many things.
— IN LONG ——————–
My name is Makena, essentially Muh-ken-uh, and I am a young artist sharing my creative thoughts & art with the world. I am the owner of my own small business (The Artist Makena) & I work at a local art gallery, Shaviq: Studio & Gallery; its a “happy place” that I am more than honored to sell my work in. How many people can say they actually love their job?
Born in Maui and named after Makena beach, I have been interested in, & practicing, art for as long as I can remember. Writing has always been another hobby of mine. Being an only child, one must entertain themselves – I did this through art & writing; I often wonder if it is because of this “only child syndrome” that I became so interested in the world of the arts.
Photography, is a new found passion, I guess you could say I purchased it when I bought my pride and joy, an Olympus Pen E-PL1. Since then, cameras have become an obsession; I now have “too many” & still want more.
It is because of my new love for photography & my lasting love for writing & art, along with other assorted reasons, that I finally decided to start a blog – so that I may share my hectic world of art with the world!
Lastly, I am attending college for an Art Major with
an Entrepreneurship Minor a Minor in Commercial Art. NOPE! :]
Lastly, I am attending college for a Double Major in Art & Graphic/Communications.
