Beth Walrond Illustrates Food Festivities

Illustrator Beth Walrond explores food festivities around the world with her art. She’s curious to learn how different cultures incorporate food in their celebrations.

Walrond’s art tells the stories like the origins of Thanksgiving in the U.S., why French eat so much cheese, and how Nowruz is celebrated in Iran.

“I studied illustration at Falmouth University, a great course where we had the opportunity to try out everything, and learn a lot about the industry,” the artist told Gestalten. “After three years of studying, I decided to try out getting some freelance commissions and being self-employed, something I hadn’t ever imagined myself doing. Almost 5 years later and I love the work I get to do and the freedom that it can offer.”
