Temporary Art

A resourceful artist will usually try to find ways to get the word out about his or her latest work. While painting large canvases I thought it would be interesting to create a work of art on a cookie. I love the idea of food as art and at the time I was into trying many different cookie recipes.

The humble iced sugar cookie turned out to be the ticket! Once I landed upon the right combination of ingredients, flavors and techniques ArtCookies was real.

As a chef it is very exciting to leave the attendees of an art show or other social ceremony with a memento that reflects the theme of the event and also is delectable to eat. As an artist it is amazing to create a work of art that can touch someone emotionally and yet be gone in two or three bites.
