Art Scholarship Student Brianna McBride presented by Geo Sipp, Director of the School of Art and Design at KSU

Brianna McBride is a freshman at Kennesaw State University. She is working toward a BFA in Art, with a concentration in Graphic Communications. Having volunteered with special needs children for many years, Brianna plans on continuing this community service in college, while also fostering her passion for the LGBTQ+ community and its related service projects. When she is not learning or volunteering, she is fond of photography, teaching, and exploring psychology through artistry. Though she enjoys a myriad of art disciplines, Brianna aspires to work as a Brand Identity Designer or Interactive Media Designer. She currently runs Endeavor Artistry, where she offers services in photography, fine art, and brand design.

Geo Sipp lives in Kennesaw, Georgia, where he is the Director of the School of Art and Design at Kennesaw State University. His work is in numerous private, public and corporate collections and his work is represented by Weinberger Fine Art in Kansas City and the Adam Baumgold Gallery in New York. He is a past recipient of the Missouri Governor’s Award for Excellence in Education.

His current work is primarily intended for inclusion in a graphic novel entitled Wolves in the City, which has the French-Algerian War as its subject. Geo Sipp’s drawings, paintings and prints reflect our experiences as consumers of the media; images are created as responses to social and political situations. The work is intended to reevaluate the ubiquitous visual narrative to which we’ve become conditioned. In addition to his artwork, Geo’s research and scholarship on sequential art have appeared in numerous peer-reviewed publications and resulted in international speaking engagements.

Sipp was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He attended the University of Florida where he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and Clemson University, where he earned a Master of Fine Arts degree. He worked as an illustrator in New York, having his work published by many of the leading newspapers, magazines and book publishers in the United States and abroad.
