Online Talk this Saturday, June 27!

And a journey it is!!! Please join me this Saturday, June 27 at 10am Seattle time (1pm New York, 6pm Paris, 2am Sydney–so sorry!) for a free online talk about my walk through this sketching life. with Studio 56’s Brenda Murray. From my first awkward sketches back in architecture school , to teaching myself watercolor, to sharing my recent and favorite work from Dubrovnik last September–it’s an evolution. I’ll show a variety of sketches and talk about the breakthrough moments and what I learned that helped me improve. My hope is that this talk will inspire everyone to push through the hard times and keep sketching!! Hope to see you there, and thank you so much… (will I ever get a good photo for these promos??) 😉

  1. Sorry Stephanie,
    I could not join “My sketching journey” this Saturday June 27 at 7 am (Paris time) with the Zoom application. I downloaded this application but I can’t use it on my computer. I hope everything went well for you and I wish you a good day,
