Sketcher at Montserrat College of Art
I've taken a little bit of the Northwest to the Northeast. Some of my Sketcher pieces are part of the exhibit "On Location: Drawing Every Day," at Montserrat Galleries in Beverly, Mass., where I travelled recently for a 3-day artist residency at Montserrat College of Art. I met students of the illustration program, attended the exhibit's artist reception and led a sketchcrawl with more than 40 students and staff in Beverly's picturesque downtown.
The idea of a show of location drawings came from Fred Lynch, a faculty member at the school and fellow urban sketcher. The exhibit includes work by Lynch and other top-notch reportage illustrators I'm proud to be associated with: Peter Arkle, Elissa Della-Piana, Margaret Hurst, Kyle David Lindholm and Veronica Lawlor.
I had a fabulous time! Thanks to Fred, Leonie, Lucas, Maggie and everyone at Monserrat for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to talk about my work.
