About the artist

Born and raised in Southern California by two teacher parents I have always been supported in my artistic weirdness. My parents always encouraged me to go after my passions...well, I love art and I love to eat!

So, I combined my metalsmith and cooking skills and came up with plated food that looks real and will last forever. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and takes hours if not days to form a plated copper shell around it.
