Cupcake Artwork

Food is a huge passion of mine particularly sweet things, so it makes sense that it should be the subject of some of my artwork. The illustrations are inspired by my cupcake cookbook I purchased in London, the 100 different cupcakes in the book are like little pieces of art, in an array of colours and flavours. My cupcake illustrations are done primarily with coloured pencils, two illustrations are mixed media combining metallic and glitter paint, ribbon and star shaped sequins.

While I'm on the topic of food I decided to share my adorable salt and pepper shakers, its shaped like two little people who fit together in a hug. It always makes me smile, although the salt and pepper comes out of their eyes which is a bit freaky.
