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:
I love helping you develop your sketching practice and discover the many gifts sketching has to offer us.
Welcome to our global community and monthly sketching challenge, when we put our passion for art into practice.

Latest stories from the blog
As I’ve been thinking about this new year ahead, the phrase “Share Your World” keeps coming back to me as a kind of unofficial theme — and having now seen your sketches, I believe in that theme even more.
Moment Sketchers, it’s that time again — our 2018 monthly sketching challenge is about to begin! I can’t wait to see what moments, stories, and sketches await our amazing global community of artists this year.
It is this image of beauty and reflection that I will be carrying with me into the start of 2018, having left ‘the lived’ of this year behind — and I hope that this picture, and Alejandra’s timely words, hold inspiration for you as well.
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
