Shari Blaukopf, Canada
Shari Blaukopf is a Montreal-based graphic design teacher, illustrator, sketch blogger and correspondent for Urban Sketchers. She has a BFA from Concordia University with a specialization in graphic design, but her true love has always been watercolour painting. In fact, she began taking workshops at age 12 and has subsequently painted and drawn her way across several European countries, parts of North America, and now Asia!
Her discovery of Urban Sketchers was a transformative experience, enabling her to connect with a worldwide community, discovering fresh perspectives on the urban experience and reinvigorating her work. She is co-founder of the Urban Sketchers Montreal regional blog and has given many watercolour workshops, including two with Marc Taro Holmes in Montreal, Quebec and Portland, Oregon through the USK Workshop Program. Her watercolours are in corporate, government and private collections in both Canada and the United States.
