Drawing the world since 2011
Hello! I'm Candace Rose Rardon, I'm a professional sketch artist and storyteller, and I'm here to help you connect with the world through art:
Welcome to our global community and monthly sketching challenge, when we put our passion for art into practice.
This is where I share weekly stories, sketching tips, and personal moments of connection with the world.

Even more than giving our community the unique name I feel it deserves, I also love how the new name of Moment Sketchers instantly conveys what we’re about. Most importantly, I hope it’ll help us grow even more over time.
I was reminded of the importance of keeping a lookout for fresh inspiration…whether it’s in something as small as noticing a fuchsia-colored flower on the sidewalk, or as grand as reliving a night with the Cirque du Soleil.
This weekend, our plates were full of the events that shape our lives — starting jobs, celebrating birthdays, saying goodbye to loved ones — but I love that we still found even the smallest windows of time in which to sketch.
Meet the Moment Sketchers community
“I struggle to put into words how Moment Sketchers has already impacted my life — because how can one measure the serendipity of human connection? Sixteen pages into my first watercolor journal ever, travel sketching continues to gift me with memorable moments — even after the sketching is complete.”- Rebecca, humanist & writer, USA
“When I’m traveling, I often wonder if I’ve really seen all those places stored on my camera’s SD card — if I really experienced them. This is what I enjoy about sketching so much and what makes Moment Sketchers so precious: feeling the pulse of a scene, the soul of a moment – and creating a memory which lasts.- Jens, archaeologist, Germany
“Joining Moment Sketchers has opened up a love that I had forgotten and put aside for many years. There is wonderful support within this group of new friends worldwide; this is a magical environment and Candace is very generous with her invaluable knowledge, watercolor advice, and videos.”- Victoria, designer, Australia
