Karen Wall


Hi, I may be the most northerly participant here, coming from western Canada. Here are a few of my sketches, mostly ink line drawings with coloured pencil or crayon--I do work more in colour but my new scanner does not want to share further. i mostly sketch while travelling and combine with notes and collages in journals, as the ones here show.

After attending art college in a galaxy and time far far away and working as an illustrator for several years I took a sidestep into academia and stopped sketching except for brief flurries while travelling. Having now tired of a working life of books with no pictures, I’m trying to get back to everyday sketching, a couple of which are also on this page. Partly this is a kind of exercise in mindfulness and probably partly an excuse to sit around longer and have another glass of wine. I’m hoping an intense whack of drawing among others with the habit will reinforce my practicing and improve whatever skills I may have. I’m really looking forward to getting to know Portland through sketching as well as meeting everyone.
