Rodriguez designs 32nd Annual Mushroom Festival Souvenir T-Shirt

Betsy (McKeever) Rodriguez has a unique style to her drawing. Using pen, she creates whimsical scenes with lines and shadow. She was asked if she wanted to try to create a design using mushrooms for the 32nd Annual Mushroom Festival T-shirt after she shared her sketchbook with a Festival board member. Betsy took on the challenge. Many sketches and revisions later the result is a great grouping of the commercial mushrooms grown in the region. “I learned a lot about mushrooms as I learned to draw them,” she said of the various types of mushrooms in the design

Betsy is a graduate of Avon Grove High School’s Class of 2009. She now lives in Brooklyn, NY with her husband Kevin.
