Food Styling

I hold a degree in interior design and I am an accomplished chef and photographer. As a child I watched my mother cook. I started creating simple recipes. My parents were both very creative. We couldn't wait to eat my mother's sandwiches because it looked so tempting. The colorful plate was decked with cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and fruit along with the chicken sandwich. Our home was beautifully decorated and our garden looked like a park. I was so blessed to be surrounded with such beauty while growing up.

A few years ago my husband gave me a camera to photograph my food creations. A new world opened up to me. It was so exciting and fulfilling. I learned through trial and error paging through countless food and interior magazines studying all the photographs I liked. My desire was to combine food and interiors and finally it all came together with styling food, using color, texture, form and photographing it!
