I love all things food and will use any excuse to get in the kitchen, from organising endless dinner parties and developing countless recipes. Over the years I have learnt how powerful food is. Not only is it a source of nourishment, but more importantly, it brings everyone together to provide a sense of unity and community. That’s where my love for styling and photography comes in - it allows me to tell a story and give the viewer a moment to think, to react, to feel and to understand all the beauty that food has to offer.
