Prudence Staite

Prudence sculpts with chocolate and food, to make edible art.

In 1996, undecided whether to become a chef or an artist (she'd always cooked as well as making chocolate paintings of people for many years), she really wanted to do both, so a degree at Winchester School of Art followed. More fusing of food and art, wanting people to be able to touch it, smell, enjoy and eat it - therefore really getting fully involved.

Over the years, Prudence has perfected her creation of a thick solid chocolate frame, canvas, edible gold gilt and a white and dark chocolate image - the totally edible chocolate painting.

Bespoke sculptures and paintings of anyone or anything you can think of are also available.
