Wes dedicates this Princess Merida doll to the memory of his grandma Martha. The first redhead he knew, she was headstrong, opinionated, compassionate, and his greatest supporter. She taught Wes to sew when he was four years old (about the same age Merida took up her bow). An artistic child, Wes was different from his peers and had no interest in upholding the status quo, like Merida. Sometimes it is necessary to break with tradition to find your own path.
