Anna Keville Joyce is a food illustrator and stylist currently based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. When she lost her pet bird named Budgie she created a beautiful series of edible plate illustrations called A Tribute to Budgie. The birds illustrations are made up of 100% food elements and were shot by photographer Agustín Nieto. 

'It's my tangible expression of mourning, a mediation and part of my healing process. I believe that all experiences, even grief, can take shape and create something new and beautiful.'

Food styling is the artist's passion and she enjoys using raw food as an artistic medium in her pieces because it's so dynamic. Sunflower seeds, egg yolks and the fleshy parts of fruits and vegetables are some of the most 'expressive' edible elements she has worked with.
