Fancy a look at my most recent sketching commissions?
Where life and work collide
A little bit about what I love to do.
As a seasoned traveler, with over five years of experience through 40+ countries, I love connecting with people and sharing the skills and stories I’ve learned along the way.
As an artist and visual storyteller, there is nothing more thrilling for me than bringing a scene to life on the pages of my sketchbook – be it my backyard or the back of beyond.
As a writer and photographer, my passion is documenting moments of deep cultural immersion – from a pearl farm in the South Pacific to a village of sea gypsies in Thailand.
From the blog
Catch all the latest sketches and stories.
Blog makeovers end up meaning so much more than we expect. As you work your way through the new layout, it gives you a chance to dig below the surface, and to think about why exactly you started writing it in the first place.
Just a few of the wonderful people I’ve worked with.
“For the header of my new website, I wanted a sketch that would be a story, 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
“I’ve hired Candace for a few jobs now. In both instances I only had a vague idea of what I was looking for. I told Candace my thoughts and she came back to me with sketches more beautiful and perfect than I’d even imagined. If you are looking for a unique and beautiful design or sketch, you will not be disappointed.”- Kim Dinan
