Long before the culture of taking photographs of what you were about to eat and putting it on facebook, myself and other artists sketched our food.
For me, it all started when I was a little girl and was encouraged to keep an illustrated diary when I went on holiday. Our caravan was often parked in some deserted campsite field near a small village like Chipping Norton or Bangor on Dee, so to kill time in the evenings my sisters and I would play cards or write in our diaries. I would quickly run out of things to write, so my mum encouraged me to draw my tea:

Now, I still love painting and sketching food stuffs and always try to include images of food I have tried in my travel journals. Here are a selection of my favourite watercolours of food.
