CAREER SUMMARY
I am a Lebanese Architect and sketch addict. I graduated from the University of Balamand- Academie Libanaise des Beaux-arts in 2016 and obtained a masters in architecture - with honor. In 2014, I started “Judy’s Sketchbook” to share my artwork online. My sketches were featured online by Wacom and Moleskine, as well as numerous other platforms. Since then, I have been sketching non-stop, giving workshops, lectures in universities, and talks as well as exhibiting my artworks. I also recently founded the “Urban Sketchers Lebanon”, a community of people passionate about sketching their environment.
My services range from designing to collaborating with other architects and various companies and organisations in creating hand drawn visuals for their projects.
WORK EXPERIENCE

2014 - Present
Judy's Sketchbook
Beirut, Kuwait, Lebanon
As an independent Sketch Artist and Architect, I spent the last four years of my career practicing my passion and sharing it with others. Amongst other things, I am currently working on designing and giving a series of workshops about sketching the architecture, the urban fabric and the life in our cities, each session focusing on a certain component of the city. I also collaborated with architects to create conceptual sketches of architecture and interior design projects to submit to clients. My passion for sketching also encouraged me to work with the UN on programs that teaches refugees the art of sketching.
