HOW MY MOM INFLUENCED MY ART CAREER

For this Mother's Day, I would like to take a moment to thank all the special Moms for all your sacrifices, love, support, caring and everything you do. I especially want to thank my Mom for being the one who helped me and encouraged me to develop my art skills.

My Mother's Day Story 
From the time my Mom found me into her paint by numbers while I was still in the crib, to buying me my first art kit by, Jon Gnagy (a wonderful book for starters), it was my Mom who first saw my potential and quickly moved to foster my talents.

It was my Mom who drove my friend and I to the IUPUI Herron School of Art for weekend art classes that we won through a scholarship at our Jr. High in 9th grade. It's my Mom who still supports me, manages to be the one to like or comment on nearly every single Facebook post I make.

This Mother's Day couldn't be a better time to take the opportunity to honor my Mom and than her for helping me reach my full potential. So if you are reading this Mom, Thank you for everything.

How has your mom helped you achieve your goals and reach your dreams?
