McKenna Marvin was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where she studied astronomy and physics in Santa Monica. She decided to make a life change and move to Japan at the age of twenty, attending college at Temple University in Tokyo.
McKenna used oil painting to express a new side of herself she hadn’t known before. Art became the most valuable form expression now given to her. After seven years of living and thriving in Japan, she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest. Here the forests, nature, and the new friendships she's makes inspire her work.
With a solid background in the fundamentals of traditional 2D media, McKenna hopes of one day of creating a captivating narrative with her imagery and is now focused on learning how to write and draw her own comic book to share the stories that are brewing in her mind.
