Simo Capecchi is a founding member of Urban Sketchers. She is a reportage illustrator and an instructor and has a PhD in architectural drawing.
Simo traveled to Procida Island, a place caught in time, to do a story for Dove magazine. There she interviewed Maria, the last fisherwoman on the island. She fishes every morning then cooks her catch for patrons in her restaurant. "When Maria is on the sea she feels free," she observed.
