During the winter of 2015 while in Florida vacationing I decided to start a business with my artwork. Up to that point whatever I painted or crafted was given for gifts. I had been retired for a few years and felt ready to do something else in my life. My husband Bill and I came up with the name NERRL from fooling around with the first “initial” of our 5 grandchildren; Noah, Emma, Ryan, Ruby and Lilla……the best pronunciation after we tried it was NERRL – so that’s where NERRL comes from! 2 of my grandchildren, Ryan and his sister Emma are in this video explaining the name. The video is from 2017 and since then Emma has passed away from cancer after a 2 year battle with cancer in March of this year; she will always be the “E” in NERRL and the light in my heart!
