Eliza A. Crowley - Age 14
Yarmouth, ME

I love to create and find new ways to grow. I enjoy practicing all forms of art. My favorite part about it is that I can express myself and share my feelings with viewers. I run track for the school in the winter and spring. I also love to bake bread, hang out with friends and family and try new things.  I would love to incorporate art in my future career.
