Laurence Jenkell has sought her path alone and found it with success. Today, the object artist, born in Bourges in 1965, is one of France's leading sculptors. She has long since become an outstanding figure on the European art scene beyond the borders of her home country. Laurence Jenkell's career is all the more remarkable because she established herself as a purely self-taught artist, producing creations without peer. Jenkell's sculptures are vital, shapely, and radiate a positive energy that evokes fantasies of joy within us. Why Laurence Jenkell chooses candy as the central theme of her art may be because her parents forbade her to eat candy as a child. Jenkell's fame has now even reached the presidential palace in France. For example, the candy sculptor, who now lives on the Côte d'Azur, has been commissioned several times to create candies in the national colors of the countries involved for international conferences.
