Sharon Fox

“When I read that “so-and-so changed my life” I always think, “How trite.” But Sharon truly did change my life. Without her direction and encouragement I would not have gone to graduate school or pursued a career in photography. Sharon brings to her teaching not just expertise, but grace, empathy, and wit. She has the ability to explain clearly, critique honestly and constructively, and shares her experiences as an artist—both good and bad. She supports each student’s unique voice, encouraging bravery and total engagement by example.”
