Leah Rosenberg is a painter who bakes. Or maybe she's a baker who paints. Either way you slice it, she is an artist & pastry chef, both pursuits interwoven & informing each other in their artistry. Working as the pastry chef for SFMoMA's Blue Bottle coffee bar, her pastries are inspired by pieces in the Museum's permanent collection or a work in a current exhibition. While in graduate school for painting, Rosenberg, while taking a cake decorating class, began noticing the response from fellow students when she brought her cakes to class for critiques. This lead to a question, can paintings be generous?, the resulting ideas surrounding consumption, judgement & creation inspiring her approach to painting.
Her gracious, light-filled home (that kitchen!) & home studio space seem the perfect laboratories for her creative processes, both edible & visual.
