I had the great opportunity to discuss a wide variety of topics with these two amazingly intelligent and thoughtful women.
Alycia Harrington is a chef that has taken the New York culinary scene by storm. She has dazzled patrons with her sweet delectables in several award-winning restaurants here in New York City. Most notably, Osteria Morini, Calliope as well as Dirt Candy, an award-winning vegetable restaurant where she was the pastry chef.
Daisy is a visual artist that has a unique scene of style and humor. She is a multimedia artist with a BFA in Art and a BA in African American and African Studies with a focus in literature from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Her work has a heavy focus on the woman and nature with themes of mindfulness, solitude, the passing of time, growth, patterns, and meditation, from a distinctly brown perspective. Daisy works from her home studio in Minneapolis where she lives with her musician/fitness instructor husband Logan U'u. Both are very accomplished and well educated in their respective fields. We discussed visual art, culinary art and a range of social challenges and issues they face as women on the art scene.
