My sketchbooks are a place of pure play for me. Sketching is a way to experience where I am, a way of relating to where I live, what I’m doing, and where I’m going. With a sketchbook available, I always have entertainment – sketching people while waiting in line at Costco or the back of a pickup truck when stuck in traffic.

My sketchbox has traveled to Japan, Central America and Europe, and I can look at these and I’m immediately drawn back to what it was like to be there. I can remember exactly what was going on around me, even though it was years ago.

March sun on the Olympic Mountains!

Spring IS coming. As we say in the Northwest "The mountains are out today!"

This little Navajo chicken I found
in Tucson is waiting for spring too.


  1. You are an inspiration Faye! I'm trying to learn watercolors and am having a terrible time...patience is the key I guess! Love your work!

  2. Hi Lara,
    Thank you. And of course you can do this, you can draw!
