Meet the Correspondents: Lynne Cotie

I can't recall how I discovered the Urban Sketcher group but I do remember it was last April, I was excited to see so many folks drawing on location. I attended art school in Denver,Colorado right out of high school but dropped out to be a mom. Being a single mom I did not have a lot of time to pursue my love of drawing while raising my daughter. She is grown and creating her own art now so I don't have any excuses.

I love the portability of working with pen, ink and watercolor. Drawing signage,labels & letters appeals to me in a big way which I attribute to 20 years in the printing industry. I admit to drinking and drawing, Capitol Hill has a couple of really great brew pubs with big windows and great views. other creative outlets include doodling and collage. 

I have lived in Seattle for a little more than seven years and have befriended quite a few artists,I am excited to be a part of this group for the challenge it presents and the camaraderie it provides.
