Cupcake. by Me

Inspired by the American artist, Wayne Thiebaud.

His works are rendered in generous impasto, almost seeming to be heaped with color and paint; they literally project from the painting giving dimension to the work. A favorite subject of Thiebaud’s, desserts, look to be topped with actual frosting, suggesting the notion of indulgence and abundance.

Summer Reading

11 Jul

Summer in Maui

While preparing for my junior year at UC Davis, I came across a recommended reading list on the department website. After a full year of only being able to read the required reading for my classes, the summer offers a rare opportunity to…read for fun. What a beautiful concept for an English major. I want to read a mixture of classic and contemporary literature with a little chick lit sprinkled in for fun. Below is my tentative summer reading schedule. What are you reading? Leave me a comment below and share your summer reading lists!


Dracula Bram Stoker

The Year of Magical Thinking Joan Didion


Paradise Lost John Milton

Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake Anna Quindlen
