Many artists enjoy mixing several passions into one, and no one does it better than Kate Jenkins. This crochet artist enjoys celebrating her love for food with her intricate knitwear designs.
Jenkins was only eight when she learned to knit and crochet, and she hasn’t stopped ever since. She drew inspiration from everything around, before realizing that food was her absolute favorite creative outlet.
“I was always looking for different ways to use my love of wool, textile, and color. And that’s how my art was born. The everyday has always fascinated and inspired me, particularly food. So I began to take things we all know and love—like fish and chips—reinventing them in wool,” explains Jenkins on her official website.
Jenkins explored her love for knitwear design at the University of Brighton, where she graduated with a degree in fashion and textiles. In addition to finding huge success with her viral, food-inspired crochets, she worked with several major fashion brands, including Missoni, Donna Karan, and Ralph Lauren.
