"It's a whole different way to express yourself and look at things," said the Churchville-Chili senior, who is a whiz-bang at digital imaging and graphic design.
It's not her only talent. Mackenzi has a rich portfolio.
"I love painting and drawing and just the technical aspect of it where you look at something and recreate it on paper," said Mackenzi. "I don't usually paint and I painted this one it was challenging, but I really like the outcome, so far."
Each of Mackenzi's pieces show her dedication to drawing, painting, and design. Her work has been displayed in art shows at RIT and Nazareth College.
"She's head and shoulders above a lot of the students that we have and she pours herself into all her work. She's excited about taking things to the next level," said Jonathan Woodard, Mackenzi's teacher. "I see her going far with what she's doing."
One day, Mackenzi hopes to be a freelance graphic design.
"Designing logos, websites, or pates, and businesses would come to me and say I need you to design a logo for my cpany and I would say, okay, I can do that."
Mackenzi's already done it. She's the lead designer of the school newspaper. She never really stops working - if you can call this work. For Mackenzi, it's a calling.
