Bio:

Port St Lucie based Fine Artist/Illustrator born and raised in the Philadelphia Region. I have been drawing since I was in the 7th grade. I am very fortunate to have grown up and be educated in Philly, a city rich in the arts.

I enjoy sketching the world around me but I especially enjoy illustration. It’s something I have always wanted to do. My childhood heroes were illustrators like Norman Rockwell, Wesley Dennis, Beatrix Potter and CW Anderson. I love creating a visual imaginary place or story. You can find my sketches and creations on Facebook, Twitter, SKTCHY, Instagram and Tumblr.

I wanted to portray the foods that were most likely to be eaten on that first celebration. For more information about Plymouth, go to www.Plimoth.org

We have made this several times this summer.

I took Koosje's Sketchbook Skool Kourse "Draw it Like it's Hot" and here is my submission!

I grew up in Philadelphia and Tony's has been a huge part of my growing up. My grandfather managed the place for the owner, my aunt was a Hostess there. Tony's Place was where we went for great food. I live on Long Island now and although there are plenty of places here to get great pizza, no one has tomato pies like Tony's. So I have to make it myself or drive 2 and half hours to get there. This is my version....
