About the Artist
John Robert "Jack" Sanders
Jack Sanders was born December 22, 1923.
He initially attended Colorado College as an art student, but changed his major to geology when he realized that a career in the oil industry would be more profitable than a "starving artist" life. Given this turn of events in Jack's life, he continued to pursue his art interests as an avocation. He has specialized in pottery and ceramic creations, and in water colors with his art. He was able to be a map maker with Conoco Oil which further used his artistic abilities.
Jack worked with Conoco Oil Corporation for 37 years in various places: Houston, Texas; Denver, Colorado; New Orleans, Louisiana; California, Alaska, and Canada.
Jack was married to Marion Louise Batson Sanders for 52 years.
Jack is a member of the Water Colors Society in Mobile and the Eastern Shore in south Alabama. Jack resides in Daphne, Alabama and attends the First Baptist Church of Fairhope, Alabama.
