I have worked for a number of years as a university lecturer teaching courses in literature, writing studies and critical thinking in Australia and New Zealand. I have also taught ESL as having a Japanese father and European mother meant growing up with an awareness of the vagaries of language.
USk Symposium Meet the Correspondent: I don't feel comfortable when I leave home without a sketchbook and some pens in my bag. I think that my way to put things in my memory is to draw them. And taking pictures isn't the same thing.
I live in a very dynamic surrounding — Israel is a warm country with warm weather and warm people. Of course, we have seashores, which calm us a little bit.
I love to sit in a corner of some Tel-Aviv coffee shop and explore relationships: All this unique local mix of cultures, languages and styles is always a great source for inspiration.
You need to be fast, because, as I said, everything is very dynamic. But that's why I love it so much.
Sometimes, I look around, and I find some usual items like sugar bags or napkins. I use them in my drawings to show the atmosphere. Sometimes I draw directly on placemats. I think of it more as a way of life — something that has become such a normal part of my everydayness that it shapes how I view the world.
For most of my life I had both the fear of drawing as well as the desire to draw. His drawings of Seattle — my birthplace and lifelong home — were of sights that I had seen many times, yet had never truly seen. I wanted to learn to see, and therefore experience, those locations and any new ones that I travel to more completely.
Sketching enables me to see my own world, one drawing at a time. In the last four years, it is not an exaggeration to say that Urban Sketchers has changed my life. I have met and sketched with many wonderful people around the globe, either at symposiums or during other travel, because the USk network brought us together.
I sketch almost weekly with my local group, sharing sketches, art supplies and friendship. Celebrating the mundane as well as the famous is what urban sketching is all about.

I tend to erase people and cars from my cities, but I'm starting to get over this. I use micron and copic pens, with watercolour. My sketch kit consists of Extra Fine Sharpies the fact that they bleed into the paper as soon as they touch it works really well for me—it forces me to work super-quicka small set of Prismacolor pencils and a little watercolor travel set".
I moved to Kassel Germany in to accomplish a master degree. Although I have always drawn and paint, it was not until I started studying in the Uni-Kassel, that I started keeping a travel sketchbook. I had a teacher there who used to do a lot of sketches when he travelled on university excursions.
When he retired, I helped to organize an exhibition of his sketches. He brought a huge box full of sketchbooks he had filled since he was an architecture student.
