I was influenced by Wayne Thiebaud to create a painting of what I love most in the world…. Toast lathered in cream cheese. I fell in love with the thick brushstrokes full of rich colour in Thiebaud’s paintings of cake, and the imagery was so vivid I actually became incredibly hungry while studying his work! I decided to create my own series of food related paintings but instead of using fancy, over the top cakes I would simply paint the food I enjoy eating. My favourite part of the day is when I make time to sit down and enjoy a slice of toast without a care in the world. When life gets stressful it is important to make time and indulge in what makes you the happiest, even if it is the simplest of things.
