This series of self-portraits was made in response to my increased self-awareness of how I irrationally consume large quantities of chocolate chip cookies. Before I started this series, I had been doing pretty well on a low-carb diet.  So, I decided I would have no problem baking my yummy chocolate chip cookies to send to my long-distance boyfriend for Valentine's Day.  But when a blizzard hit and I was unable to get to the post office, I was alone with those treats and could not resist the temptation to sample them. I ate one or two, which wasn't a big deal.  But then, the sight and the smell was too much! I caved, eating in under an hour every single cookie that I had lovingly baked for my boyfriend. I consider this series to be an honest and humorous attempt to show the lengths I have gone to, on more than one occasion, to indulge in cookies as a compulsive reaction to stress, anxiety, working under pressure, or impulsive distraction to boredom.  If you also happen to notice the portrayal of a mindless consumption of technology at the same time, then you are getting a glimpse of my plight with these issues.
