Sketchaway is a store created by Suhita Shirodkar. She is a wanderer, who is influenced by her love for travelling and it translates into her works of art. Her travels have taken her from San Francisco to Singapore and most of her sketches essay memories of her trips and tours. Her favourite medium to work with is watercolors and paints.

”I love capturing life as it happens, and am never without my sketchbook and watercolors. Travel inspires my work, and in an ideal world, I would live out of a backpack, travel the world, and sketch all day!”

During each of her travels, whether to Chennai or Cambodia, she sketches what she sees, and when she does, they turn into her magnanimous, yet minimalistic pieces of art. She uses different media to give her pieces depth and character. She follows her heart and travels the world, sketchbook in hand, building her own kind of photo album. The imagery she uses are all inspired by real life. She uses her sketching as her camera and draws all the sights that make an impression on her. She even holds workshops for art novices and teaches them the art of sketching.

”I work quickly and from life, to capture fleeting gestures, a passing moment, and the light on a landscape. I use watercolors, pen and ink, and occasionally, colored pencils. ”

She uses her blog as her way of relaying what her designs are about. You can find her sketches on her Etsy store, but be careful, you might end up falling in love with more than a couple of her works!
