My name is Alexandra and I’m a sketchbook artist. I always have my sketchbook with me, in case I want to draw something. I live in Berlin and I usually draw on location, trying to tell little stories about places, I’ve sketched.
When I’m traveling, I try to explore every city I visit through sketching on location. Of course, it takes longer time to draw something, than to take a picture of it. From the other hand, I observe things longer and from the different perspective. Sketching also helps me to find contact with the city residents. I always check up, if the local Urbansketchers group has a meeting during the time I visit, and join them.
I also do organize workshops and life drawing sessions.
