Interiors & Food Stylist. Creative Consultant. Takes photos.

Winner of the Maggie Diaz Photography Prize for Women 2015. 

I am a Food and Interiors Stylist, recipe developer and cook, who also takes photos.

My focus is predominately on advertising campaigns, cookbooks, editorial photo shoots and TV commercials.

My career began 16 years ago, and after 2 years as a freelancer I stepped into a role as ‘Market Editor’ with Vogue Living Magazine. I was with Vogue for 3 years.

During this time I developed many valuable relationships with retailers and photographers, all of which became an integral part of my foray into freelance styling, alongside a natural progression into food styling for publications such as Vogue Entertaining and Travel, Delicious magazine and many others.

I’d like to think my aesthetic is honest, simple, clean and uncomplicated, often focused on an individual theme, always careful to never over-style.

Publications I have contributed to include; Vogue Living Magazine, Vogue Entertaining and Travel, Delicious magazine, Country Style, Inside Out, House & Garden, Instyle and Belle Magazine.

I’ve also just finished styling my 32nd cookbook and have worked alongside authors of which include – Greg Malouf, Philippa Sibley, Donna Hay, Margaret Fulton, Karen Martini and Kathy Tsaples, Jane Webster, Will Studd, Scott Pickett, Darren Purchase and Donovan Cooke for publishers Penguin, Slattery Media and Hardie Grant publishing.

My advertising clients include; Country Road, Trenery, Myer, Coles, Tupperware, Five am yoghurt, Penfolds, Burbank, Sirena tuna and Hungry Jacks.

I also have a a range of props available for hire.
