I have been creating artworks for over the past 20 years or so. I am an artist who likes to explore art through different medium types...

My sketchbook appears in The Sketchbook Project Submission video

Late last month I posted off my completed sketchbook to the Brooklyn Art Library (Art House Co-Op) in New York and once the library received my book they sent me an email to say that my parcel had arrived to New York safely. What a relief!

About a week later I recieve another email from the Art House Co-Op requesting me to view a video the library had uploaded to Youtube. It was a video of all the latest submissions that the library had recently recieved. As I sat watching the video with my husband Andrew, he quickly spots (@ 0:20) my sketchbook being held up by one of the staff members during the recording. Even though my sketchbook was only shown for 2 seconds, it was still exciting to see it on camera. Unfortunately I never got the chance scan my sketchbook fully (except for the front cover) because the our scanner went on the blink and the due date was coming to a close. To see my book in the video was the next best thing!
