description <p>On my first visit to Prince Edward<br />Island, when I was 14, I met my<br />mother's cousin, Charlottetown architect<br />James Harris. He asked me if I<br />owned a sketchbook, for he had been<br />told I liked to draw. No, I said, for the<br />thought to have such a thing had never<br />occurred to me. Immediately he set<br />about making me one. He cut up several<br />large sheets of drawing paper into<br />smaller pieces, bound them together<br />between cardboard covers with string,<br />and supplied me with a set of coloured<br />pencils. My first sketch was of the<br />Harris cottage at Holland Cove.</p>
