"Mariah loves art and has been painting since the 1st grade. Her style is semi-realism, as she often paints girls of all shapes, colors, sizes and landscapes. She has also done styles for decorative purposes too. She can do it all! Even though she has taken a few classes in school, she's mostly self taught. She surprised me with a pic of her grandpa (my dad) for my birthday and it brought me to tears. She has painted pieces for family members and friends. If she's not painting, she's playing music on her guitar or viola.

Mariah, I am so proud of you. You are bursting with so much talent. Brag and be proud of yourself. You deserve it!" – Mom
