I’m Alissa and I have been drawing since high school in graphite pencil, later adding coloured pencil. In the past few years I have been introduced to watercolour pencils and waterbrush pens and they have opened up a whole new world to me.
I carry my sketchbook with me everyday and draw the things that are around me, and parts of my life. Everything becomes interesting as you observe and draw it ! I’ve visited the Botanic Gardens a few times to draw and I am looking forward to spending more of this summer and autumn exploring the grounds and discovering more about the plants, people, animals, building scenery and everything else that the Botanic Gardens has to offer for me to sketch and enjoy.
