MC Gensheimer started her career, in 9th grade, with a soldering gun, plaster of paris, yarn, a can of orange spray paint, and a camera.
Her photographic,sculptural, and graphic work has been accepted regionally for publication and gallery exhibits. She has worked closely with the Erie Chamber Orchestra, creating cartoon characters for the educational outreach to all local grade schools. Characters were used in a complete music lesson plan packet distributed within the Erie County regional schools.
In May, a 3D printer showed up in her office. The summer of 2015 was the summer of learning to print 3-dimensional art using Photoshop, Autocad, and 123D. The small sculpture of the Gannon Arch is a favorite.
She currently serves as a member of the Gannon Wayfinding committee. This group works on Signage, Graphics and Art placement on Gannon's campus. She lives in Erie, with her husband, two cats- Digit and Gracie and a dog named "America's President Cool" AKA Callie.
