About

After 12 years at the Los Angeles Times Magazine, where I wrote about interior design, food, architecture and travel, and produced articles about food and entertaining (including hiring photographers and creating visual concepts), I traded in the 9-to-5 world to become a freelance prop stylist and on-set art director. Crazy sometimes, and certainly unpredictable, but I love the fact that each styling job offers a different challenge.

Living in Los Angeles gives me access to all the resources needed for my specialties: product/still life, food, lifestyle and interiors photography. Knowing what to edit out of a photo is often just as important as knowing what to add to one, and I’ve developed a well-trained eye for color, style, proportion and arrangement. I’m professional, organized (some say it borders on the scary!) and my years of experience have given me an implicit understanding of layouts and typography, budgets, food idiosyncrasies and recipes. Simple or elaborate, I love the collaborative process of achieving clients’ goals—and believe in having lots of fun while doing it. And, over the years, I’ve had the good fortune to work with some of the country’s best photographers, food stylists and creative agencies. I often lecture to photography classes about prop styling and art directing.

As a West Coast Field Editor for Meredith Publications, publisher of Better Homes and Gardens, Traditional Home, and many special interest magazines, I scout homes in Southern California, arrange and art direct photo shoots, and travel on special food assignments. I served as the set director for two seasons on the Better Homes and Gardens television show.
