Feedback from Ivy Daniels
Female, 54 years old. I am no longer able to work because I have chronic acute kidney failure, so I started painting because it helps keep my mind busy, off my pain and gives me goals to accomplish and everyone likes my paintings. That makes me feel good about myself and life and gives me hope.
My favorite artists are Rembrandt, Monet and Michelangelo. I love the way Michelangelo & Da Vinci do people. I’d like to learn more about that technique.

My favorite artists are Picasso, Degas and Monet.
Feedback from Matthew Phillips
I am an Illustrator by trade but have resorted to any odd job that can pay my bills. The number of things that I have done to support myself is mind boggling and humbling for what I have had to incur and I am still trying to break out with my art, I am currently a caregiver. I can adapt to practically any situation and do it well. I have inventions on the table and a desire to create masterpieces. I’m a published poet and artist. “The Purpose of Poetry, JFK’s Prologue, A Book of Poetry by Matthew Phillips” I have images that could provide me with a residual income, but had poor schooling and need proper direction. I am a very skilled draftsman. …
Feedback from Barbara
I have a masters in mixed media sculpture from a school in the 80s that taught creativity is more important than technique. I did not study drawing or painting and am pursuing that now.
I do not have much space in my apartment to use for painting, drawing, etc. and have to constantly switch things around (set up, close down each session or to move from one to another). I also have no way to hang work around to review or dream from. Odors are also a big problem as I sleep in my work area. It’s crowded and not ideal, but I am determined to not make excuses and continue my studies.
