After graduation I fell in love with food photography and sought out any information I could about the subject. After searching the net I found a mentor and what is now my food photography bible - "Plate to Pixel" by Helene Dujardin. I was also able to attend one of her wonderful workshops giving me a chance to put into practice the valuable information that was taught.
I feel that I am now living the second half of my life. I love to cook and take pictures of my food. I am a self-taught chef that loves to cook, create new recipes, and take photographs during the process and the end product. I have had the privilege be an assistant to several professional chefs. I have worked as an assistant at several food photography workshops.
I have another creative side; the side of artist. I take on freelance work in painting (acrylic or oils) and linocut prints that are hand carved, hand printed, and hand painted. My blog is a journey for me; a journey in creative storytelling using my recipes, photographs, art, and things that inspire.
