Makenna O'Keeffe is a California College of the Arts Alumni. While at CCA she majored in Interior Architecture. Her other focuses were in furniture design and construction, fashion, jewelry/metal arts, figure drawing and fine arts.
She spends her time thinking about space and forms around us, how space affects us and how we affect space. The visual language of design and art. And how we connect to each other and form relationships with the objects and forms in our daily lives.
She is currently looking for work in any of these related fields, for after having taken a break post art school to regain excitement and motivation, she is officially ready to get her feet wet.
