Artist Promotes Healthy Eating Through Food Art

Lauren Purnell shares some creative uses for food other than the obvious way in her Tumblog Culinary Canvas. According to the 21 year old student from Vancouver, “I love food, adore art, and am greatly fond of combining the two. Devoted to sharing my love for healthy food through food art.” Using fruits or vegetables that are currently in season, Purnell often finds inspiration in her surroundings such as the summer flowers or the bees buzzing around. The result is a colorful, lively, and vibrant food art that makes healthy eating worth a second look.
