about McKenzie

it is so nice to meet you!

Hi, my name is McKenzie and I am the artist + owner of

Monarch Creative Studio


I've always been an artist, even as a young child.

Many projected that I'd study art, but actually,

I viewed myself as an aspiring architect.  

An artist-architect, like Da Vinci or Le Corbusier...  

...That passion never went away, and

Well, I am an artist of architecture

And that's a pretty cool thing.

I studied Interior Architecture from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

I've worked with architects, builders, designers, and realtors.

Today, I make home portraits, handmade with love.

My favorite part

Is that I get to learn the story behind every home

Of what makes every project unique.

To whom makes this house, their home.

I want draw your home's story!

...how'd you get the name, Monarch?

I thought you'd never ask.

Everyone has a sign from the universe.

Some see specific numbers, like 11:11, or

A cardinal appears whenever you think of your mom, or

Maybe you just get shivers up your spine.

Well, the day I decided that it was time to start my own business

A swarm of monarchs flew right in front me.

From that day forward,

I saw (and still see) a Monarch every day.

To me, these Monarchs are a reassurance that

The universe has my back, and

I am showing up for my life's assignment.

...and, I do love that MONARCH is a combination of

Mona [Lisa] and Arch [itecture], because that is what

MONARCH is, a combination of


All My Love,
