I am a retired graphic designer now living in rural Ontario halfway between Ottawa and Montreal. For over 35 years I lived in — or in the suburbs of — the wonderful city of Montreal where I sometimes participate in the outings of the Montreal Urban Sketchers. After decades creating on a computer, it has been good to trade in the mouse for a pen, brush or pencil to observe and record what I see.

Inspired by fellow sketchers who have undertaken regular sketching practices, I have established this blog as the depository for my efforts. With thanks specifically to  Shari Blaukopf and Karen Leslie Hall for the impetus.
