Hello and thank you so much for stopping by! I’m Lauren Purnell, the creator of the blog, CULINARY CANVAS –
a photography blog where I share my love and appreciation for food through ‘Food Art’. If you’re thinking ‘what the hell is food art?’ then you’re not alone. It’s an obscure idea but it’s exactly how it sounds – it’s art made out of fresh and healthy food which I call ‘Culinary Canvases’. To check out exactly what I do, follow the link above or click on the ‘Culinary Canvas’ page in the menu.
While pursuing Food Art, I realised that one of my favourite aspects was the photography involved; after all, what was the point of putting in the effort if I couldn’t capture the pieces in the way I intended to? By learning to photograph my Culinary Canvases, my interest in photography grew and I quickly fell in love with my camera. Seriously.
Although I love creating Food Art, I also wanted somewhere I could share my experiences in food and lifestyle beyond Culinary Canvas – hence this blog. Now I don’t know very much about blogging or whether or not it’ll be seen, but developing this personal site has provided me with a creative outlet for my photography and a place to capture my culinary adventures, creative ideas and daily inspirations. It’s basically a place for all the things I love! Which, admittedly, is pretty much breakfast-related recipes, flowers and pictures of random excursions. Regardless, I hope you enjoy looking around. If you have any questions or just want to say hello then please send me a message or find me on Instagram/Twitter: Lopurnell.
Thank you so much,
