I changed my name to “Rhoda Draws” legally in 2009. I’m an Urban Sketcher and I teach “Sketching Fast & Loose” workshops in San Miguel and other magical towns in Mexico. Website: https://ontheRHODAgain.com/
As a professional caricature artist, I’ve had decades of experience creating rapid drawings of people at events. An early pioneer of digital painting, I used Corel Painter for live caricature events as well as studio work. This led to publication of numerous books on the creative use of both Painter and Adobe Photoshop.
I also use digital media to create quick gestural drawings of live models. Some of these drawings are combined digitally or printed on archival rice paper. Many such combinations inspire larger mixed media paintings on canvas.
In 2018 I moved to San Miguel from the San Francisco Bay Area. My house in Colonia Guadalupe, is called “Casa de Dibujo.” (House of Drawing). You can see my urban sketches and figurative drawings at Galeria San Francisco in La Aurora. Larger figurative paintings and portraits can be viewed by appointment at “Casa de Dibujo.”
