A student gives a whole new meaning to 'playing with your food' as she creates spectacular art on dinnerplates - using only fresh fruit and vegetables. Food artist Lauren Purnell, 22, creates amazing plants, animals and landscapes from healthy foods.
She combines her love of food and art to create brilliant designs such as a mother duck walking with her ducklings, a turtle swimming and even a boat in the sea. Lauren, a masters student in marketing and brand management, uses nothing but her hands and a knife to put the spectacular pieces of art together. She uses all types of fruit and vegetables and even uses the ingredients we never usually eat, such as pips, peels and skins.
