The mixed media series Learning How to Cook Everything was born out of a collaboration between the artist and her husband to intimately document his foray into cooking as developing a life skill, a creative endeavor, and an avenue to continue a family tradition after his father’s death.
The title is a reference to New York Times writer Mark Bittman’s seminal cookbook, which served as the how-to manual to her husband’s otherwise unmentored efforts. Using traditional and non-traditional negatives and incorporating collage, the artist sought to weave together highly personal photographs with images culled from wider cultural sources.
