School increased my feelings of marginality – even though I was good at the work. I was not typical. I was different. This is the reason I never wanted to be taught art or go to art school. I knew it would just get in the way – blunt the rawness and sharp focus of how I see the world and wished to illustrate it in paint. Being taught ideas was a different matter. I went to three universities.
