Hi, I’m Amalia! I’m currently a Senior at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Five years ago I began my “clean eating” journey. By removing unnatural and processed foods from my diet, I was introduced to the wonderful world of super foods. I was inspired by these foods, they were all so beautiful and vibrant in appearance, I considered each one to be a work of art in itself! I couldn’t help but arrange them in an artful way every time I’d make something to eat.

About three months ago I decided to create an Instagram account called “The Wholesome Bowl”. Using food as my medium, I create vegan/vegetarian culinary art pieces, photograph them, and then share them with the world on a daily basis via Instagram. My drive to share these food art mandalas with the world stems from a deep desire to inspire people. With a little guidance, we are all capable of living a healthy, wholesome lifestyle!
