Throwback Thursday: Me in Seventh Grade!

Yes, this is me with the rest of our Junior High School Art Club! Am I wearing lipstick? Did I always have a look of terror on my face?
In all seriousness, if it weren't for my art teacher, Mrs Jones, I wouldn't be where I am today. She piqued my interest in art from the beginning and pushed me to keep creating. Not to mention she taught every single one of my siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends in our little town of Minooka. Go Indians!! Fan-TASTIC!
