Rockford IL

My Mom and Grandmas inspired me. My mother always pushed me to try new things. I loved watching my Grandma making winter accessories my family. My other Grandmother was very into crafting and would get me supplies for new things to try. I'm very thankful for having a family that is so supportive and encouraging of my artistic side.
