This is a collection of sketches from various travel sketchbooks I have taken with me whenever I have had the opportunity to travel. My sketchbooks are and will always be among my most cherished possessions. Every tattered page holds a piece of my heart and my desire to depict a place on paper. These are not perfect images, but they represent moments in time I have been fortunate enough to have experienced and for which I am eternally grateful. Travelling is the key to amazing adventures!
