Are you looking for the perfect holiday gift for a grandparent or a keepsake to capture your child’s appearance this year?  Harding artist Tine Kirkland Graham’s quick pen and ink sketches with watercolor highlights capture the essence of a person’s form, and she will be at Bernardsville Public Library on Saturday, December 1 from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm ready to draw sketches on the spot.  The cost is only $10/figure on paper ($20/figure on canvas), and a percentage of proceeds from the event will benefit the library.  Call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up for a timeslot in advance.  Ms. Graham can also work from a photograph if a child is not available on December 1st, and she draws dogs and cats from photographs as well.  Photographs may be dropped off in advance. 


“I love to sketch people of all ages, all sizes and all shapes,” says Mrs. Graham, “With their colorful garb, their different hair styles and attitudes, they all have a story to tell and I try to get the feel of each person.”  She also writes books which she illustrates with her colorful drawings—about dogs and children’s stories with illustrations set in Nantucket, Bay Head and Florida.  


 Describing herself as a “late in life artist,” Mrs. Graham is self-taught and took some courses at The Center for Contemporary Art (formerly the Somerset Art Association) and the Summit Art Center.  She began with pastel portraits of children and then moved on to large, wild beach and ocean scenes.  Her work is represented in two galleries in Nantucket, as well as one in Bay Head, New Jersey and one in Florida.


Call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up or to get further information.
