“For this painting, I wanted to highlight familiar kitchen staples, along with some lesser-known ingredients. Daikon stood out the most to me. While this root vegetable has grown in popularity recently, I fondly remember it as a secret food of my childhood that none of the other kids knew about, just for me to enjoy. I was delighted to include it as a nod to my Vietnamese-American heritage.”
