Meet the Correspondent: AJ Tauber
Although she loves the visual arts, AJ considers herself more of a writer than anything else. Nonetheless, she is an enthusiastic cofounder of the regional Urban Sketchers group in Oʻahu (Hawaiʻi). She hopes to one day produce sketches that are as jaw-dropping as the ones regularly posted on the Urban Sketchers website.
Having a lifelong interest in anthropology, AJ is naturally drawn to the ‘storytelling’ aspect of sketching and values in particular the human connections that the pursuit documents and creates. She first encountered Urban Sketchers online in 2012 and later had an opportunity to mingle with fellow sketchers in Lyon, France, and California, USA (San Francisco Bay Area, San Diego, Davis). These occasions were memorable for the ease with which sketching allowed total strangers to immediately find common ground and communicate.
Thoroughly hooked, AJ would like to improve her sketching skills, as well as visit with other Urban Sketchers groups worldwide.
