Malaysian Mum Of Two Daughters Samantha Lee Started Making Culinary Creations Several Years Ago To Encourage Her Daughter To Eat Independently

Lee Samantha, "I started making food art in December 2008. When I was heavily pregnant with my second daughter. It was to encourage my elder daughter to eat independently after the arrival of her younger sister. I sketch my designs before I make them into food to stay organized and prevent food wastage."

"I look for cute images or a topic to start with every morning. Then, I sketch the ideas. Sketching the creations brings more inspiration; the more I sketch, the more ideas I will get."
