Fancy a look at my most recent sketching commissions?
Where life and work collide
A little bit about what I love to do.
From whimsical house renderings to custom hand-drawn maps, I love working on original watercolor paintings that capture the places that hold meaning for you.
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.

Catch all the latest sketches and stories.
The past four days gifted me a series of phrases that have been circling in my head from the moment I heard them, so this year I thought – why not let Book Passage speak for itself?
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
