Food Props: A Caulk and Styrofoam Cake

I had an opportunity to work on a food prop for Chicago’s The Floating Opera Company’s production of The Quantum Mechanic–super fun!

Miniature Sushi…and a Spleen

The mice and I have been happily buried in mini food orders, and one was a particularly fun request for detailed sushi platters. On a totally different note, I had to do a project for my Chinese Five Element Theory class in massage school, and since we were given free rein to do anything we […]

Say Hello to the Under-Bed Friends

Welp, this is it! The dream room box headed off to Washington this afternoon, traveling back to the National Building Museum for the Small Stories exhibit. It was so hard to let it go, but I know it’ll love its new home! Before I packed it up, I couldn’t resist adding one more detail, a […]
