When Nhasala Manandhar moved to Austin from Dallas in 2016, she sought out a way to learn about the city while simultaneously pursuing her passion for art. What she found was the Urban Sketchers group of Austin – a self-proclaimed local community that meets to sketch and promote the (larger) Urban Sketchers mission and manifesto.

Since joining the group two years ago, Nhasala has produced a number of sketches that give life to the iconic scenes of Texas’ capital city. “I have gotten to know Austin and a group of people who enjoy sketching just as much as I do, “ she said.
