By Deborah Koff-Chapin

Through the immediacy of Touch Drawing, I am able to visually portray the content and feeling-tone of a lecture, poetry reading, meeting or musical performance. I create 6-7 drawings per hour. I love the collaborative nature of the experience. I have done this for over 1,000 different presenters. Scroll down to see the galleries. See a list of events and presenters for whom I have drawn.

You can order signed, archival fine art prints in a range of sizes. Find an order link on each image to order Fine Art Prints. All images © Deborah Koff-Chapin. For permission to reproduce or to purchase an original, contact The Center for Touch Drawing.
