  • "I was thirteen years old when I decided to become an artist. I taught myself to draw by practicing every day. I drew whatever was in front of me--books, cats, my left hand, my sisters and brothers, chairs, chilies, paper bags, flowers--anything or anybody that would stay still for a few minutes.... I have three college degrees. When I was in high school I could hardly wait to graduate so I could go to college and study art." [Carmen Lomas Garza. 1996]
