I’ve lived in West Medford for more than 40 years. I am a grandmother, a writer, editor and writing coach. In 2010, I began interviewing people about their ‘Food Life Stories’, beginning with childhood and moving through the changes in their lives. Absolutely everyone has a food life story. I’m fascinated by people’s lives and following individual story lines of food and eating is powerful and revealing.
While exploring my own food life story, I began the Eating Art Work (EAW) project, making simple line drawings of food, as a way of having a conversation with food.
Some drawings are wrapped in whimsical prose, following a chain of memories. Some images have no words and others are simple patterns.
I enjoy producing colorful, useful items featuring my playful designs. On my Etsy site (www.eatingartwork.com) you will find sturdy dishtowels, notecards, prints, occasionally aprons, tote bags and fleece blankets.
I love being part of WMOS.
