Janet Link is studio artist and teacher who grew up in Raleigh, NC in a family that nurtured her constant desire to make things. Every year when the sun retreats and the air chills she turns the focus of her drawing practice away from charcoal and paper to an edible drawing project. With excruciating attention to detail, she creates a limited edition of elaborately decorated spicy gingerbread snowflakes, each one a unique work of art. People say these cookies are too pretty to eat…but Janet says they’ll be missing a damn good cookie.

In early December she sells her cookies in the triangle area of North Carolina.
