In The Studio

Matcha tea or green water colors? Food as art! This is “Joie” to me. According to historians, the word “ART is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination… producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.”

As you can see, “ART” is defined by its genesis in the human mind. As a creative, I hope to show you creativity through food? Food is just one of my many loves. I express love through food, travel, fashion and by living a healthy lifestyle. I also express love by edifying other people.

I love all kinds of food. I love good country foods like turnip greens, butter beans, okra, sweet potatoes, trout annd corn bread. These are the foods I grew up eating.  Food that feeds the soul. But, I also love Italian pastas, Pho’s, and Sushi. My culinary studies and travels around the world have introduced me to a wide variety of experiences.

Food is meant to be enjoyed. If we learn how to eat with moderation, not restriction then we may rekindle that part of ourselves that eats with heart. For many its called “Soul” or “Soul Food.” Whatever word we use, food as “Art” is essential to Joie!
