making people feel like celebrities and celebrities feel like people
My heart is to celebrate artists, celebrities and musicians, not simply by recognizing their biggest accomplishments, but by capturing and honoring who they are as a human being!
For many years, you would have found me waiting outside of a music venue by a tour bus in the cold, holding a mysterious flat white box. Maybe you thought it was a pizza box for a post-concert snack. But if you were the friend I'd invited with me to the show, you knew it held a set of 16 elaborately decorated sugar cookies featuring the band's album covers, merch designs, band photos, and other meaningful graphics. It was a gift I intended to give to the band, a true labor of love I created in hopes of honoring their care in crafting and sharing their music, their visual discography, their career, their story.
When witnessing their reaction, my favorite part wasn't simply snapping a pic with someone famous but watching the barrier of fan-to-star fall as we instead connected as an artist-to-artist, both in awe of each others' talent. While now I no longer wait in the cold and instead partner with venues, record labels, and promotion companies (see below) to join in on the celebration, my heart has remained the same:
I aim to not simply celebrate artists and celebrities' greatest accomplishments but who they are as people in a surprising and intimate way by recreating their art—their story—on edible cookie art!
