And that’s why she and other artist at the Arts Alive Gallery in Frisco have started the Love Notes project, encouraging others to help them make cards with artwork on one side and messages of inspiration on the other as a way to say thank you to front line heroes, like teachers, during the pandemic, “we’re doing an outreach program called Love Notes to honor our local heroes, our local hero teachers,” said Kuennen.
