I’ve always been interested in the sense of place. Appleton, WI has been the setting of most of my life’s story. I’ve spent the past year illustrating it’s timeless spaces and establishments. I love to draw the much-loved local businesses that survive decades with little change and lots of charm. In sharing my art at craft fairs and markets, I’ve experienced that art inspired by a community fosters further kinship within it. I’ve seen my work renew a heartwarming type of hometown pride among Appleton’s residents. I hope to continue sparking fond memories and connections for people who also appreciate my hometown.
