A representation of the past in the form of sugary snacks

About this piece:
I've gravitated towards food my whole life. It could be that I come from a family that loves to cook and bake, or maybe it's just that I love to eat. But what I've also realized is that I tend to associate food with memories and that many of my favorite memories match a candy-coated treat that is just as sweet as the moment it represents. So here is a compilation of those treats - an almond-covered pretzel for the trips to the mall with my mom, the candy bracelet for my elementary school crush, the zebra cake from my first painting class in college, and a handful more.
About this artist:
Steph Stilwell is an illustrator and designer based out of the tiny state of Delaware. Her work includes food illustrations for recipes, whimsical patterns that cover a variety of objects, and even a few toy designs. When she isn't working on freelance projects, you will likely find her watching the Food Network, scribbling in her sketchbook about funny conversations she's overheard that day, or watching goat videos.
