Marcella Kriebel has always been an artist and foodie. She moved to Washington, DC in 2009 for an internship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. While the Oregon native continues to live in the city to this day, frequent visits to the Pacific Northwest and abroad keep the creativity flowing. Her studio is located on the Arts Walk in the Brookland neighborhood of DC. She is the author of the illustrated cookbooks Mi Comida Latina and Comida Cubana. Both cookbooks feature over a hundred of Marcella’s favorite Latin American dishes captured in vibrant watercolor, ready to be explored.
In this episode, Marcella discussed how starting a daily art practice after being laid off from a job she loved led her to create her first cookbook. We discuss her Kickstarter, how she slowly grew her art business, and the importance of in-person shows. She also talks about the impact of the pandemic and the process of switching from in-person to virtual workshops. Lastly, we discuss video tips for courses, finding printers for your products, and what’s going on with her store in Brookland.
