Emma FitzGerald sketches Halifax and its residents vividly, in colour. She effortlessly catches moments in the life of the city. While she draws, she keeps notes on what she sees — and what people say to her. She has an ear, as well as an eye.
In this sketchbook you will find spots you didn’t know existed and hear stories you never imagined. Emma overhears conversations at local restaurants and bars, notices prom night in the Public Gardens, learns the recipe for McNabs Island famous lemonade, checks out Ashtray Rock and finds out where the real fishermen live. The personality and character of the city and its people shine through.
