About the Author

Stephanie Bower worked as a licensed Architect in New York City before gravitating to professional architectural illustration and concept design. She taught the how-tos of architectural sketching for over twenty-five years in New York City at Parsons, in Seattle at the University of Washington and Cornish College of the Arts, and most recently, in popular sketching workshops called 'Good Bones' where she teaches the concepts of basic perspective sketching and watercolor. Bower was an instructor at the 2014 Urban Sketchers Symposium in Paraty, Brazil, and also teaches an annual workshop in Civita di Bagnoregio Italy. People around the world follow her sketches online via Flickr, her blog 'Drawing Perspectives', and as blog correspondent for Urban Sketchers. She is the author of The Urban Sketching Handbook: Understanding Perspective, (Quarry Books, 2016).
