Confections (adorned) #24, 2012
from the series Confections

Both of these images were created the fall and winter of 2011/2012. I recently moved from the very urban setting of Philadelphia to a small city 60 miles northwest in Pennsylvania. I am living in a little borough outside of Reading with my partner, our dog and 3 cats. We are enjoying having space, a backyard and are reminded daily of our surroundings looking out the window. These images were inspired by the seasons and the new landscape.

The Confections Series began as a response to turning 30. It was a celebration of birthdays, color, pattern and obsessive absurdity. My original idea was to bake 30 birthday cakes for myself and photograph them. I didn't quite make it to 30 cakes in time for my first show, but I sure got a lot of ideas from those first cakes. I ordered a kit from Martha and watched an instructional video on decorating cakes. When I quickly discovered my cakes were never going to look like the ones in the video and the pamphlet, I decided they were better off in their exuberantly imperfect states.
