Gina LentoPatchogue, Ny, US
Long Island based Fine Artist/Illustrator born and raised in the Philadelphia Region. I have the best of both worlds, except that there are certain foods I can't get on Long Island, so I have to wing it and recreate them in the Kitchen. 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 the challenge of drawing food. Some of my food sketches have been called Food Porn by the locals.. I had never heard the term before but I love that people think that way about my creations. You can find my sketches and creations on Facebook, Twitter, SKTCHY, Instagram and Tumblr.

Our Village of Patchogue, NY, started a new pub style crawl last year, where instead of a bar hopping crawl for alcohol, crawlers are treated to breakfast creations such as Chicken Waffle Meatballs and Creme Brûlée Fireball French Toast. All I have to say is OMG. This is a map of Breakfast Crawl #5 coming up this Saturday, October 7, 2017.
