Quick Bites By Kell

Quick Bites With Kell was a food themed Instagram account I started in the fall of 2018. I was experiencing the incredible food scene in New York City and wanted to share my experiences through food photography. It was a creative outlet for me at the time and allowed me to keep one foot in the food world while the other was in teaching. 

When the pandemic shut the city down, I moved back home to California to stay with my parents. It was in my parents' home I began to experiment with the art software Procreate. I shifted the direction of my account to drawing the food I saw in my feed or illustrating ideas in my head. Quick Bites with Kell soon became Quick Bites By Kell, a food illustration account where I could share digital illustrations and fun food facts.

Class of 2020 Graduation Series


Molecule Monday was inspired by what I learned as a food science student at UC Davis. I was fascinated by the different functions that each molecule served in our daily lives and how little I had known about them prior to my studies. Armed with the information I had, I set out to make food science more accessible to the general population through the use of bright colors, structural breakdowns, and social media.
