My name is Jody Linn and I currently live in Winnipeg, Canada, working as an artist and illustrator. As a child, I was definitely not one of those kids who was always drawing or painting.
In school, I opted for home ec courses over art, and my formal training now is through City & Guilds in Textile Arts, not painting. I have worked as an arts administrator, a professional cook, and a conservator/curator for the Costume Museum of Canada, with an assortment of odd jobs thrown in (emphasis on the odd).
I began painting as part of my museum work and fell in love. So why food instead of fashion? Because if I’m not at my worktable, I’m in a kitchen. Because closing your eyes at how good something tastes is the best feeling. Because making someone hungry from their own imagination is even better.
I want to make your mouth water.
