The Art Colony Association, Inc. (ACA) has announced the Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park 2020 featured artist is McKenzie Fisk, a painter from Los Angeles. Fisk, along with 300 artists from around the country representing 19 different difference disciplines, will showcase their art at Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park. The festival benefits Houston nonprofits, and will be held on Friday-Sunday, March 27-29, 2020.
Fisk knew she wanted to grow up to be an artist since she was a child. As an adult, she neglected her passion for creating art while earning a Bachelor's in Microbiology and Fine Art, followed by a Master's in Physiology from Columbia University in New York City. A year after launching her own business, Fisk began painting in her free time. She quickly realized that art could be as intellectual as science and rediscovering her happiness for painting. Realizing the stories behind her art and its aesthetics were gaining notice, she decided to follow her heart and pursue her passion full-time.
In 2014, she sold her company and moved to California. Using geometric shapes along with bright colors, Fisk paints both children and animals in relatable moments as they experience life with new eyes. She captures innocence while exploring and enjoying life’s simple pleasures. Fisk adds slightly broken pieces in her work to demonstrate experiences and how people disassemble and reassemble themselves and their lives.
