Your comments will be deleted and you will be blocked

If a person asks a question on the Candy Waters Autism Artist page on Facebook, it will likely only remain if it pertains to there being art for sale and where it can be purchased online.  If it is a compliment, stating that the art is amazing, beautiful, and inspirational, it will also  remain.

However, if a question is asked, no matter how politely and respectfully, about Candy’s painting process, charities, or other topics that the Waters don’t want to address, they will quickly delete the comment and block the person who asked, usually within minutes.

Many times, other families with children on the Autism spectrum are looking for guidance, help, comradery, inspiration, new techniques to try with their children, and other information.  To find a successful page like the Waters’, which has over 100,000 alleged supporters, seems like it would be a good place to find kindred spirits when you don’t know where else to turn.

No.  Unfortunately, that is not how it works on the Candy Waters Autism Artist page. If your comment isn’t about wanting to buy their merchandise or giving glowing compliments, you and your words will immediately vanish.

Below are 2 screenshots from the public Facebook page.

The first one shows a comment from a mother with a child who has an Autism-related condition.  She is asking about making a purchase and wanting to know about the merchandise site Zazzle being non-profit, because she would like to support raising awareness for the condition.  Under that is a compliment made by a person who speaks Spanish.

The second screenshot shows that the question was not answered, but instead deleted. The compliment in Spanish underneath is also gone.

A public video created by a person who also has Autism

The public video below was made by an adult who also says that they themselves have Autism, and this person has recently become focused on explaining from their own unique perspective how it is unlikely or impossible for Candy Waters to have been the real artist behind the art being marketed on Facebook, PAOM, and Zazzle.

To be clear, no one is saying the child isn’t painting or playing with paint, but her skills depicted in videos and photos do not convey the motor skills or intellectual skills necessary to create the intricate and more complicated designs being branded as “done completely by Candy”.  Watch the video below, and then look at the art being sold – you are invited to draw your own conclusion.

Also, pay close attention at the 1:40 mark, where the video suddenly cuts from the child doing dots and blobs to some “mystery hands” in close-up, that are doing more precise and controlled painting strokes.  It is not likely that the mystery hands in the close-up section are Candy’s.  Then, the video cuts back out to a full shot of Candy, continuing with dots.

 

Below is a public comment from the Waters’ Zazzle website, made by “Sonata”, who claimed in the title that “authentication was completed long ago“, but doesn’t give any details about how, who, when, or where to validate that conclusion, except to say that it was done by “high-ranking people all over”.

ssSONATAzazzle

At the Waters’ public Zazzle shop there are over 1000+ products with art branded as being 100% done by Candy.  Below are a few of the designs being promoted.

Multiple Online Identities

The Waters, in an attempt to get attention and access to groups on Facebook, have used many fake profiles.  Here are a few:

  • John Brand
  • Saffron Burrows
  • Anna Martinez
  • Dr. Gatto
  • Sonata
  • Liiz
  • Robear
  • Fred Johnson
  • Karen Miller
  • Mary Mitchell
  • Gene Frank

At one point, several of the fake Facebook profiles had been reported and Sandy changed the made-up names to her “government issued ID” real life name, as requested by Facebook.  When the fake names were abruptly changed to her real name (Sandra/Sandy), it showed several conversations where she was talking to herself, complimenting herself, and shilling the Candy Waters art as a way to decoy people.

Public post from Facebook below:

screenshotsandytalktoself

And yet, Mrs. Waters attacks and harasses people and claimed in her blog that she “only uses her real name”, and how ridiculous it is that other people look like they are talking to themselves, and that they are psychotic frauds that need mental help.

In the screenshot below from a public Facebook group called Single Parents of Children with Autism, not only was Mrs. Waters NOT single at the time of the posting, but she had originally posted her comment as “Saffron Burrows” in order to prompt the fellow group members to ask about buying Candy Waters Autism Artist merchandise.

When her name had to be changed back to her real name, it was clear she was boosting her own post as a shill.  She does this technique in many hundreds of groups.

ssSINGLEPARENTS2

As an example of her many multiple fake profiles, here is a screenshot of the public, fake “Saffron.Burrows.92” profile with the name changed to her Government ID name, after being reported to Facebook.

Spamming Facebook groups

The Waters have targeted a huge audience on Facebook by posting and spamming literally thousands of groups. They range from chronic illness and cancer groups, to political groups, food groups, parenting groups, art groups, homeschool groups, international groups, rare illnesses —the list goes on and on.  Below is a partial list of the groups that Sandy Waters has spammed.

Keep in mind this is a list of mostly “public” groups and only a fraction of the “closed” or “secret” groups.  It also doesn’t include the groups that they have been kicked out of for using false identities or spam (also numbering in the hundreds).

The mother has claimed (or at least given the impression when asked by group admins) to have had a huge range of illnesses to gain access to some groups. When individual group members have asked Sandy Waters whether she has personal connections to the illnesses somehow by either having the illness herself or having a relative with it, the the question is ignored and the person is quickly blocked from future correspondence.  On some occasions, she has responded with answers like, “A cousin has it.”

No other contributions to the groups are made.  No help, sympathy, comments on others’ threads, or awareness posts. Nothing to help anyone else in any kind of way.  It has been verified by many people in these groups that the Waters just join the groups, post links to the Facebook art page, and then direct people to buy things at their Zazzle shop.

It is typical for predators to seek out vulnerable and sympathetic people for their money and support.  The Waters clearly appear to use that technique.

Here is a PARTIAL list where the Waters have posted or spammed:

And this:  —>  Targeting women who have had breast cancer in a survivor group called “BREAST CANCER TATTOOS”, with the caption next to the promoted art explaining,  “…maybe my next ink…
Or in another breast cancer group: “Maybe my next tattoo.

She was insinuating that she was a cancer survivor in several closed Facebook cancer groups (beyond just breast cancer), just to self-promote art that is faked to begin with.  How likely is it that Ms.Waters actually has the myriad of diseases she claims in the thousands of chronic/terminal illness groups she joins, when she has previously stated publicly that her family “doesn’t believe in doctors”?

Below is a public post in a kidney cancer survivors group in Michigan:
