about me

Rebecca Bass

Short Bio

I grew up on a family farm in Edenton, North Carolina. Growing up on a farm taught me the true meaning of hard work. I am the youngest of five kids, so people like to say that I'm spoiled. I like to think that's just a nasty stereotype. I've been an artist since before I can remember and love all creative and crafty things. My best friend (and partner in crime) is Nelson, a 75 pound Goldendoodle.
