Fancy a look at my most recent art commissions?
Where life and work collide
A little bit about what I love to do.
As a self-made creative entrepreneur and seasoned world traveler, with over seven years of experience through 50 countries, I love sharing the stories and skills I’ve learned along the way.
As a sketch artist and visual storyteller drawing inspiration from the world, my passion for illustration lies at the heart of where culture, connection, and creativity all converge.
As an insatiably curious writer, I document moments of deep cultural immersion and connection – from a pearl farm in the South Pacific to a village of sea gypsies in Thailand.

The Book Passage travel writing and photography conference is a kind of touchstone place I keep returning to, and yet each year finds us all moving forward in our lives and work as well.
Just a few of the wonderful people I’ve worked with.
“I loved working with Candace – her illustrations are not only beautiful but descriptive. I needed something very specific and she delivered quickly and en pointe. The video that her work is used in is cited by many as the most artistic and creative of the A Broad Abroad Series.”- Paula Froelich
“For the header of my new website, I wanted a sketch that would tell the tale of my life. Candace worked with me to figure out what had been the defining places, moments, of that story – and then captured them perfectly! She rendered the story of my life more beautifully, charmingly, and movingly than I could ever have imagined.”- Don George
“Candace was such a pleasure to work with. Within a week, she sent me the preliminary sketches, and they were exactly what I wanted. Using the palette I had in mind, she re-created my journey with her brushstrokes. Her sketches tie my website together, and people who read my blog are entranced by the ethereal feeling they induce.”- Amy Gigi Alexander
