One such student is Anastasia Morozova. The first week I painted on campus she stood at my shoulder asking question after question in broken but improving English. Her eyes were shining in the quest for learning more about painting. She instantly impressed me with her hunger for knowledge.
It has come to my attention that Anastasia has no parents or means to pay for any further college. As an orphan from Moldova, she has excelled as a student and artist at O’More. I have included her bio below and two examples of her art.
My wife Chris and I feel that Anastasia must continue her education and we want to ask you to help us make that possible. She has captured our hearts as she will yours.
We would like to invite you to meet Anastasia, (physically or virtually) view her art and enjoy a glass of wine and cheese (sorry, but only you physical ones) at our home this afternoon, 5-7 p.m.
Dr. Mark Hilliard, president of O’More believes in her strongly and will be here to make a short presentation. I have donated an original watercolor that can be purchased through a silent auction that evening with all proceeds going to Anastasia's scholarship fund. Myself and Artists Ken Davis and Kelly O'Neill will have art on display to benefit Anastasia. A love offering for her will also be taken. All gifts will be made payable directly to O’More College of Design and are tax-deductible.
Anastasia has absolutely no means of support. She is a dedicated student who is also a hard worker. I see her working hard every day at the O’More tea room. Please join us and help support a promising young artist.

Anastasia Morozova was born in 1989 in a small village in Ukraine. At nine years of age, while living in a Moldovan orphanage, Anastasia began studying art and found her true passion. When she was 18 years old, Anastasia came to America, after spending nine years at the orphanage.
She is currently a sophomore attending O'More College of Design in Franklin, Tennessee and studies Fashion Design. She continues to excel as an artist. Anastasia speaks Russian, Romanian and English.
Whether it is a charcoal drawing, a painting or a sculpture, Anastasia is able to capture the essence of beauty in her works. Her future is bright with the possibilities of what she brings to both fashion design and art.
All proceeds for Anastasia's artwork go toward supporting her tuition at O'More College of Design. If you would like to become a part of her success as an artist and student, you may request a personalized work of art.
