Announcement   2018 WALL CALENDAR, NEW IMAGES & A NEW PRODUCT!
Welcome!
I'm happy that you decided to visit the Eating Art Work etsy shop.
If you have thoughts or suggestions (a favorite veg or fruit or edible flower that I haven't yet included...) as you explore the shop, please send me a note...
Responding to customer requests is always a pleasure.

New images will be coming soon, initially as note cards.
Although kitchen towels are not currently being produced, with new or classic designs,
I am, as always, willing to make up a minimum order (2) of any EAW images.
Please note that they are labor-intensive, I do need about 3 weeks lead time.

Come back soon to check out the 2018 Wall Calendar, NEW Fleece Blankets and some NEW Tote Bag designs. Many of the classic Tote Bags designs are still available.

As always, we want to remind you that kitchen towels and totes make wonderful gifts.
Sets of note cards (available at a discount) are also a welcome gift.
Handwriting personal notes is making a comeback in the age of the Internet...

sincerely,
CJ

About

Eating Art Work: a Conversation with Food

I’ve been a writer and a cook all my life.
A few years ago, I started interviewing people, collecting their ‘Food Life Stories’ for a book. I'm fascinated by people’s lives and following individual story lines about food and eating is powerful and revealing.
Making simple line drawings of food, using artist's markers, is my way of having a conversation with the food that I eat, to get beneath the surface of my own Food Life Story.
I call my drawings Eating Art Work. They are wrapped in words, following a chain of memories, sensations, even recipes.
Somehow my EAW project became more public. I used a few drawings to put together a 2012 wall calendar for my ‘January birthday’ friends and family. To my surprise, they wanted one the next year and the next...
I experimented by having fabric printed, to make gifts for ‘June birthday’ friends and then there were Eating Art Work towels. The images are colorful and I love dishtowels because they're useful.
Prints, note cards and tote bags happened. Sock creatures are just fun to make!
What's next?
I'm still drawing regularly and playing around with new product ideas. And I'm still doing research for the Food Life Story book.
It's an evolving story...
