Artist McKenzie whose motto is "ART MAKING A DIFFERENCE" paints celebrity Ellen Degeneres to raise funds for charity.
McKenzie, recent winner of the ARTV Fine Art Awards for Mixed Media, has released her newest painting in the Celebrity Series entitled, "Laughter is the closest distance between people" featuring celebrity Ellen Degeneres.
"McKenzie is so passionate about using her art to raise awareness and funds for causes close to her heart. She is a huge fan of Ellen Degeneres-It was a no-brainer," says Manager Steven Rice.
The original Mixed Media painting is 60" x 60" and features Ellen Degeneres encircled by laughing onlookers from all age ranges and ethnic backgrounds. "Ellen Degeneres is such a genius, she brings us all together through her wit...I tried to portray that through my art," says the artist.
The McKenzie Art Studio is on a quest to raise $1 Million dollars for charity and is well on its' way. 100% of the profits from the website and art sales will be donated.
