Hi. My name is Fay. I live in the midst of pear country in central
Washington State, in the United States. I feel so blessed to live
the beauty of nature.
I draw and paint what I see in
sketchbooks, which I make myself, using papers which I choose for their
texture and how they play with ink and watercolor. Each completed
sketchbook is a little different than the others and contains sketches
from a certain time period in my life. Some of my sketchbooks contain
local scenes or what is growing in my garden or scenes around my home
and local area or people doing interesting things. In other sketchbooks I
record things that have caught my eye while away from home. Stories are
what stand out to me and visual storytelling Is my goal as I fill the
pages in the sketchbooks.
I have come to prefer keeping my work in sketchbooks rather than sketching on loose watercolor sheets. Even though I may not fill each book chronologically, it is nice to be able to flip back through to remember experiences and scenes from the period I was working in the sketchbook. Thank you so much for visiting my site, and I wish you a creative day!
