The need to make things is in my blood.

I'm the daughter of an art teacher, a carpenter and the grand-daughter of three artists. My childhood was a swirl of clay, paint, beads and hot glue and I’ve been creating ever since. After receiving my BFA, I worked as an advertising art director in New York and Los Angeles for 13 years. This conceptual, design and detail-oriented experience now informs my work as a photo stylist.

I love the days I spend on the hunt for the perfect something as well as the smooshing, smearing, slicing, dicing, stacking, spritzing, and “joojzing”.

My focus is in still life, cosmetic, food, beverage, and botanicals.

I currently live in Los Angeles with my husband John, our young daughters Luella and Frances, and our deaf dog, Herman. I feel lucky to have found my dream job and am always looking for new collaborations. Please say hi!
