Hi! I’m Diane Perin Hock, and along with Phil McDonel and Richard Sheppard am excited to welcome you to this new Urban Sketchers regional group. This area of California is so beautiful and has so many wonderful sites to sketch. I’m delighted to be part of a group dedicated to sketching it and sharing it with the world.
A bit about me. I have had little formal art training, although I’ve been a fiber artist for many years and have exhibited my art quilts internationally. I’m relatively new to sketching, but I’ve caught the bug. The Urban Sketchers’ blogs and flickr images have inspired and taught me so much. I’m a lawyer by profession, currently working part-time, I travel a bit to judge quilt shows, and I homeschool my teenage daughter. Life is busy and sketching provides me with my own form of creative meditation.
