Meet Ida Skivenes, a former data analyst who quit her job to become a full-time Instagram artist.

She is best known for her food photos, created out of things like fruit, cookies, and bread.

In fact, she has more than 280,000 followers on Instagram and a book that has been published in seven different languages.

Skivenes tells Business Insider that Instagram has fundamentally changed her life.

Here’s her story and some of her best work:

Skivenes just finished her master’s degree in 2011 and started working full time at the official bureau of statistics in Norway.

That year, she also turned vegetarian, which made her experiment with food. "Experimenting with food was part of my everyday activities, so it was natural for me to post it on Instagram," she told us.
