Is your work influenced by season or changing weather?

I would say both since my work revolves around food.

What’s the best thing you’ve ever gotten in the mail?

COOKIES ( I am very food motivated).

What is your favorite holiday tradition (new or old)?

My husband and I get Chinese food and watch terrible Netflix all day.

How do you find comfort?

I find comfort in routines – be it in my studio, at home, or out in the world…I typically need to start the day with coffee and quiet, and then end it with reading in bed.

Do you have a favorite fall/winter/holiday memory?

When I was about 10 or 11, I remember my entire neighborhood being pummeled with an four inches of ice during the holiday break. We lived on top of a very steep hill, so it was insanely unsafe. A few of my close cousins had come over to celebrate and ended up having an extended stay because of it. That break was filled with food, laughter and a lot of people yelling “throw me a rope!” because they slipped, lost their footing and ended up at the bottom of the hill.

What is your go-to holiday dish?

Peking Duck take out.
