Statement

My rebellious obsession with drawing, and art in general, surfaced in school when I should have been doing my studies. School frustrated me because I was labeled "hyperactive" and "dyslexic", but the truth was that my teachers were angered by frequent questions that they could not answer. All except for Mr. Fredericks, or "R.F.", the teacher who encouraged me to keep going, and discouraged me from taking standard "how to" classes asserting they could "corrupt" my talent. Although I'm always learning and trying new things, I did take Mr. Fredericks advice and avoided traditional "art school".
