Starting with the whirligig critters I created and sold in 4th grade (till the principal shut me down), to my short-lived stint as an art major, the specialty cakes I baked for friends and family, and my ongoing career as an actor, art in one form or another has been a constant companion throughout my life.
My love of the arts, however, has always had one persistent rival: a serious sweet tooth. These two passions inevitably intersected when I began handcrafting cookie molds to bake unique opening night cookies for cast mates. Custom requests soon followed and led me to form Artesão Unique & Custom Cookie Molds - the perfect melding of art and sweets. I draw inspiration from the world around me with an admitted favoritism for the fantastical and humorous, and relish the creation process as a whole. It's exciting to know people use my molds to help celebrate the big, important occasions in their lives as well as the ordinary "Hey, let's make cookies!" moments. Above all, I love the shared memories we make when baking with others and giving bakers -- novice or pro -- a unique canvas on which to express themselves.
And, well, I really love cookies.
