About

Woodland Sketches: Reviving the Lost Art of Letter Writing

It was a Friday night and I was so tired of chemistry.

I decided to let myself draw what came to my mind, what I imagined, what pleases me intently, and what I drew was squirrels playing the violin. That night was the just the beginning.

Since then I have apparently created a whole forest full of happy-go-lucky critters that still make me laugh out loud when I look at them. The best part is they make other people laugh as well. I feel like I am just scratching the surface of this beautiful gift of art, a hidden language, that communicates joy without words.

I have also been observing how much excitement I receive when somebody sends me a handwritten letter. I can only imagine that others also have a hidden excitement that wells up inside them when they find a letter from an old friend in their mailbox. However, handwriting and letter writing are slowly becoming forgotten. We can turn it around. I have left my sketches blank on the inside as a reminder to revive this lost art!

All of my sketches are made in a smoke-free home.

Woodland Sketches is named after Edward MacDowell's piano suites, the "Woodland Sketches". These are pieces for solo piano that combine music and nature so beautifully. I strive to do the same with my stationary line.

Enjoy them!
