Liz Steel is an obsessive sketcher from Sydney, Australia who loves sketching her life and sharing the experience. Her goal is to inspire and enable anyone to develop the skills to become an Urban Sketcher and have the confidence to sketch anything at anytime – to tackle complex scenes out on location even when there isn’t a lot of time.
Liz worked as an architect for 20 years and although freehand drawings was part of her job, she never managed to sketch for herself regularly. Then, a little over 10 years ago she discovered watercolour pans in a compact field kit for the first time and fell in love! She started sketching her life with ink and wash in Jan 2007 and hasn’t stopped since.
After 6 years of obsessive sketching she made the big decision to leave her architectural job and is now working full time as an artist, blogger and teacher.
She shares regular updates of her sketching adventures and lots of tips on her extensive blog – lizsteel.com and creates in-depth sketching courses for her online school SketchingNow.
Liz is an Urban Sketcher correspondent, founder of Urban Sketchers Australia and a regular instructor at the annual International Urban Sketchers symposium. She teaches face-to-face workshops locally in Australia and all around the world. Liz recently published a book called 5 Minute Sketching: Architecture which is full of her best tips for sketching buildings.
