I started the Vancouver Urban Sketchers because I want to spread the word about urbansketchers.org which is a global community of sketchers. I started urban sketching on my own, and later found this community which was a thrill to me. Most of all, I want to share my enthusiasm for sketching with others, rather than always sketch in isolation. I wanted to create a sketching community in Vancouver. (Update June 2014: Actually, I just wanted to find 5 other people to draw with. And look what happened.)
I have a degree in graphic design. I love to draw, I love to travel, I like urban places. I like coffee, chocolate croissants and many other pastries (this is not a requirement for urban sketching, but then again it helps when I hang out in coffee shops to sketch inside when it's cold outside).
I am a Vancouver graphic designer and artist. For fun and relaxation, I like to sketch scenes of the city and places I visit on my travels and share them with others online.
