France Belleville Van Stone
Mount Olive, NJ, USA
France is a French-American author and teacher. Her book Sketch! encourages everyone to take a few minutes out of the day and practice drawing, either digitally or on paper. She is a self-taught artist who also teaches French in a public high school. She has been teaching at Sketchbook Skool since 2015. Her fascination with old Volvo wagons inspired her to call herself wagonized and her work is featured at wagonized.com.
France believes her limitations are her greatest gift: no fancy tools or verbiage — just a ballpoint pen and a piece of photocopy paper will do.
