I make food the camera loves! I can make anything look absolutely divine and sumptuously delicious. I've been called a makeup artist for food, and I love my work!
I also provide a myriad of consulting services to the food industry including recipe development, cookbook design and creation, culinary writing, project management, and art direction. Using both my food styling and consulting skills, I have completed seven cookbooks for my clients and have two more in the wings.
With over thirty years’ experience in the food industry, I bring a positive “can do” spirit to every project. Precision in my craft and great problem solving skills are two of my strongest assets. My patience, even temperament, and playful sense of humor make long arduous days on the set easier for everyone. I thrive on working as part of a collaborative, creative team, and love the synergy that naturally happens when a group of creative people "think together." Bringing my clients’ vision to life is always my primary goal.
I have styled advertisements for a number of ad agencies, international and national companies and publications, and worked in TV, video, editorial, advertising, and packaging. You will find a client list, along with numerous testimonials here on my website.
In tandem with the authors I did the food styling for an award winning cookbook, Flying Pans:Two Chefs, One World, which won two awards from the prestigious International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP), considered the gold standard for culinary publishing. I have since done six other cookbooks.
It's so beautifully arranged on the plate,you know someone's fingers have been all over it. -Julia Child.
