“My cousin Norman Rockwell inspired Americans for 40 years with his oil paintings on 332 Saturday Evening Post magazine covers. He showed people as warm, human and truthful. He helped us to remember that each of us can make a difference in each others’ lives. I try to carry on that tradition in my own way.” — Jessica Rockwell
