I have been working in the industry for over 20 years.My enthusiasm , love for food and styling remains the same to this day!
After studying at the Metropolitan University,I started work on a food magazine as a cookery writer.This had always been my ambition,developing recipes for features and styling on shoots.
Several years later I moved to the Meat and Livestock Commission.This led to me food styling on tv commercials and advertising shoots.Also developing recipes for company advertorials,I thoroughly enjoyed the variety of work.However you can have too much of one thing even for a meat lover like myself!
Tesco gave me the opportunity to gain so much experience working as a food stylist in packaging which is still my main area of work.The vast range of products kept me very busy!Part of my role was also to develop recipes for marketing leaflets, back of pack and point of sale.
For many years now I have worked as a London based freelance food stylist.Working with central London photography studios and design agencies,with whom I have a great working relationships,hopefully they would agree!Some I have known since the beginning of my career, I am however always willing to travel and work with new people.
A selection of my most recent clients include Muller,Cadburys,Galaxy,Waitrose,Sainsbury,Tesco,Green and Blacks,Jordans,Ryvita,,Onken,Uncle Bens, Donegal Catch,Green Isle
