As an extension and complement to my painting practice, I operate a micro bakery called ‘ie bakes.’ Whether at home or on residency, I am always baking. I make bread weekly with my starter named Sponge, often producing two loaves it has become a ritual of gratitude for me give one loaf to someone who is on my mind. The products and parameters are constantly changing — sometimes they are gifted, made for bake sale fundraisers, or for my weekly community-supported baking program. Because food is one of my primary muses, the baked goods, as well as their stories, are inevitably featured in my paintings and drawings.
