"I have spent my life as a city dweller. I have sketched people on subways, buses crowded streets and in quiet parks. I love the calm and quiet in the midst of the hustle–bustle of the city. No one bothers me. City people have always been discreet, extending privacy to those who want it. Perfect if you want to study trees and how they grow."
