Van Gogh joined the Art Station staff soon after building renovations were completed in 2004. He was born and raised in the Fort Worth South Side neighborhood, and received his education through the Art Station’s on-the-job training program with classes held on the back porch. Van Gogh’s approach to achieving the emotional healing of the Art Station’s clients includes rubbing legs, lap warming, and table sitting. He has been known to take his sessions out to the car, as he enjoys observing his clients engage in their environment from the perspective of the car roof. Van Gogh is so dedicated to his people that he meets them in the parking lot, and walks them to the back door. He has recently started an elite training program for select young Compassionate Kitties who have the passion to assist in the healing of Art Station clients.
