Food Art by Jolanda Stokkermans

If any art can be edible, then it must be that of Jolanda Sokkermans, who has got to be the coolest lunchbox packing mom ever, turning healthy food into masterpieces that are too pretty to eat! Jolanda, a mother of two living in Koersel, Belgium, shares some of her incredible dishes with Indelible—try guessing the ingredients in each artwork!

From Jolanda: “A year and a half ago I started a website about meal prep with 5 menus to cook ahead for several days. During my search for nice pictures of the dishes, I decided to design and photograph the plates myself. I didn’t want to make boring pictures, so I let my creativity loose. This got a bit out of hand, ending in animals, skylines and portraits. I am a graphic designer by training so that’s why 🙂

My kids encouraged me to post this on Instagram, where I don’t even have an account yet, and this ended in an unexpected 22,000 followers!

After several online features (Bored Panda, 9Gag, Wix, Talenthouse, My Modern Met, Marie Claire etc. and interviews, I received all kinds of requests for interviews, assignments and workshops, some of which I have carried out, some have been postponed due to Covid-19 and are still on the planning in the future. Currently I am working on several workshops for adults and children.”
