Artworks by Sandy Fox
It’s been a long, rather fractured journey…please read on. I had just come out of an orphanage in the early forties and moved into a cinderblock basement with my grandmother and grandfather. There was an old stove, a washtub, a cardtable, an old chair and an incinerator. As my grandmother and grandfather played cards every night after dinner, I would sit in the big chair and draw pictures in my grandmother’s books.
Drawing by Charles Simmons
For as long as I can remember I have had a love and passion to draw.
Through the years, due to various things in my life making demands on my time, drawing and art in general, has had different faces and roles in my life.
I had a very bad experience with an art instructor when I was about 13/14 years old.

Drawing and story by Kat
When I finished high school, I asked my parents if I could go to Art university. Long story short, they were of the opinion that it will not put bread on my table and that art school was only attended by druggies. My art teacher at high school tried to convince my parents that I was talented and to please let me go to the art university in the town where I lived. I was actually forbidden to go. I became an office manager, but art and creativity has always been a part of my life.

I need this course and your expertise
9 years ago I graduated from an art college. I was extremely excited and was looking to accomplish my dream of becoming a professional artist.
Today I am a full time artist with a successful art studio. I also teach private lessons to selected clients on one-on-one basis. Through the years I have motivated young artist to never stop studying art. We can never say we know it all. It also so happens that lots of my students enrolled at universities and competed their master degrees in art. I am still their own private tutor that will always play a role in their lives.
I am 82 years old retired university professor. About 3 years ago I started painting, with no previous experience. I am still straggling.
