Karissa is the daughter of Brad St. Onge and Lea St. Onge and is in 11th grade. At school, Karissa is involved with concert band, pit band, and Spanish Club. When she's not at school, Karissa enjoy's reading, baking, arts and crafts, shopping, listening to music, and spending time with friends and family.
Karissa says she hasn't always loved art. She said that in 8th grade (her first art class), she liked the process of creating art, but now she feels like she understands how to express in art and that makes it more fun.
