Food Art

These are one of a kind, edible, whimsical interpretive works of art. Using a combination skills from "past lives" I blend theater set design, water gardening and landscaping to capture the theme of an event:

"The Un-winding" a divorce;

"Mid-Summer's Night Dream Picnic" - Contra Dance snack for "Much to Do About Contra".

With the help of many hands my art comes to life - a cluster of broccoli flowers becomes a bush, a dozen brussel sprouts a hedge row, thin mints are stepping stones, a hundred plums a swirling pond - and like a Mandala when the wind blows the art vanishes before your eyes ... bite after delicious bite.

"This looks like a painting ... its too pretty to eat!" by Ellen at "Healing Journey's" dinner.
