Using pop-culture references and memories from her experience, she creates contemporary pop-art pieces that represent a memory to her as the artist while also provoking a memory or feeling for the viewer. As an extension of 90’s Summer, a painting of character icees and related imagery made and sold in 2020, this scent is created with the intention to invoke the nostalgic summer days from your childhood. With warm sunny notes of citrus and the refreshing subtle scent of icees, these candles will take you back to a simple and joyful time.
