About Kombisketchtour

Kombisketchtour brings together a 23 year friendship in a collaboration to celebrate the natural world through the tradition of observational drawing/ painting and stop motion animation.


Jane Hindmarch studied Painting and Printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art to postgraduate level and has since exhibited widely and taught extensively.  She has earned several awards giving her opportunities to travel and study and has organised national and international collaborative art projects.


Maxine Greer studied at Loughborough University gaining a first class BA Hons in textile design. She has lectured in drawing at Edinburgh, Winchester and Birmingham.  Maxine has managed services in mental health specialising in children and adolescents using the arts to engage young people. Maxine won the Peoples Choice Award for her installation of over 200 paper sparrows as part of the Peterborough City Open

Kombisketchtour explores Rutland and the surrounding counties in an artistic road trip in a VW Campervan.  Making regular pit stops Maxine and Jane draw and sketch to capture the seasonal highlights of the rural environment.

In a world of sound bites Kombisketchtour takes time to pause, observe and document moments in nature.

The duo value and want to encourage the act of working in the landscape, to celebrate the process of observational drawing, to develop the skill of recording, and enhance our engagement with the natural world. If you would like to get drawing get in touch.
