KENNESAW STATE UNIVERSITY
The young Filipina girl organizes her dinosaurs for her mother to draw. While observing her mother, Edrienne decided to be bold and pick up a pencil mimicking her mother’s movements. Running to the father, her mother excitedly explains that their 3-year-old daughter is an artist. At the age of 3, on that day, Edrienne Rocio discovered her talent and continued developing her artistic skills over the years. Today, she is currently a Kennesaw Owl student getting her “Hoot” on the Graphic Communications Degree while working in the field as a Graphic Designer/Print Productionist at Minuteman Press Marietta. Her inspiration and creativity expands from her friends, family, and love of dinosaurs. A true night owl working, studying, designing and always improving is awakened every morning by the passions of others reminding her to keep going. The love of those dinosaurs have not changed as Edrienne finds peace creating art with “Ecko” the Gecko on her shoulder and “Sol” the furry pitbulla-saurs by her side.
