Activity Presenter: Andrea Matthews, United States

Andrea tends toward line drawing but can’t resist trying new pens, paper, and techniques. She draws architecture, people, and landscape, using pen and ink, markers, and watercolor. Andrea has been organizing Portland Oregon Urban Sketcher’s monthly sketch crawls since 2014. She also helped organize and lead the 2nd Annual West Coast Urban Sketchers Sketch Crawl.

Andrea is an electrical engineer turned architect. Before making the big career switch, she traveled for a year and then started architecture graduate school in 2004. Andrea started sketching regularly during a summer study abroad in Italy and Turkey. She has lived in the US, Germany, the Philippines, South America, and France. This will be her 4th Urban Sketchers Symposium – she hasn’t missed one since she found out about it.
