Why are you interested in joining the Vancouver Urban Sketchers?

I can't say enough about this group! The opportunity to meet so many people of all ages, nationalities, and all with the shared passion to draw has been terrific. I have seen parts of Vancouver and surrounding areas that I either never knew existed or familiar ones that I now look at with fresh eyes!

Please tell us a little bit about yourself, your interests, your background — whatever you are willing to tell.

In my spare time I love to draw, paint (watercolours). I'm also into photography and family history/genealogy. Travelling is a favourite past time - Hawaii, New Zealand, the UK, Sweden, France, Italy, Poland, China and Israel. I always journal and sketch when I travel.


I'm Catherine Youngren. I am a commercial interior designer, specializing in the design of senior care facilities, particularly for memory care and dementia. Born in Edmonton, Alta, I've lived in the Lower Mainland for 40 years.

What Catherine Y is saying about this Meetup Group

I am very glad to have discovered Vancouver Urban Sketchers and look forward to many more sketching opportunities
