Inspiration to me is very much following people’s lives who have not gone In a Straight Line. Not only did Lauren not come from a culture of pies, she didn’t make her first pie until about a year and a half ago. She didn’t set out with a grand plan, she just started playing with it, one pie at a time. She worked as an executive admin to finance her life. She didn’t go to art school, she didn’t follow in someone’s footsteps. Design wise, I can’t decide if I want to create prints of these beauties to hang up, or if I just want to stare at this page all day. I swear if I made the edible flower pie at home I’d never leave my home. And I LOVE the Not The Straight Line of her life … I love the joy, the sharing element, I love that she focused on the positive and non-logical hunch of it all, and the beautiful, beautiful designs.
