Activity Presenter: Caroline Johnson, Manchester (United Kingdom)

I studied Fine Art at Preston, Falmouth and Central, St. Martin’s London. My first drawings for UrbanSketchers were circa 2009. I’ve contributed to the books The Art of Urban Sketching, Sketch Your World, and Archisketcher. I’m particularly known for the images I’ve made of Manchester and Salford, although my work also encompasses interiors, figures, wild moorland and live music! I’ve had solo exhibitions in several regional public art galleries. I’ve been a specially invited ‘reportage’ artist at music festivals, including Festival No.6 at Portmerion in 2015. I run workshops in drawing and sketching, this year including a return to France and a season at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
