I have a website just for my photography under construction. In the meanwhile you may view some of my work here as well as learning about my introductory prices.
I am a fifth-generation Californian, raised in a rural, agricultural environment in Southern California. I received a degree in Design, Color and Composition from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, however my interests have led me around the world in search of knowledge, fascinating people and good food.
Through the influence of my father I became an amateur historian with a special interest in the foods of Ancient Rome, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. I was food consultant and catering coordinator at the original California Renaissance Pleasure Faire. My food column ran in the San Francisco Examiner and the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner and I am the author of over a dozen cook books and my first novel, a culinary mystery, was published last year.
I developed my love of photography during my travels and it has grown to include portraiture, boudoir, landscapes, botanical studies and food styling. My travels and my interest in history and fo0d traditions helps to bring depth to my photographic work.
