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.

Latest stories from the blog
Markets have always had a way of drawing me to them. No matter how big or small, each market has a way of unlocking that place for me, letting me get to its very heart as I witness the local community coming together.
I once spent a couple of nights in Vancouver, before catching a ferry to nearby Salt Spring Island, so doing a live interview with a radio station in Vancouver this week was a fun and unexpected return to the city for me.
Teaching a sketching workshop reminded me of the power of our sketchbooks: That instead of looking down at our devices, sketching draws our gaze up and out into the world, where beauty and discovery await us.
Meet the Moment Catchers community
“I struggle to put into words how Moment Catchers 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 Catchers so precious: feeling the pulse of a scene, the soul of a moment – and creating a memory which lasts.- Jens, archaeologist, Germany
“Joining Moment Catchers 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
