Before we get acquainted, can we all agree that “About Me” pages are the worst to write? I’m kind of shy like that. It’s a middle-child thing.
I love delicious things. I love beautiful things. I love to create. I love to learn. This is where I share it and I hope you’ll join me.
My food collages on Instagram started out as a way to showcase seasonal and local offerings from neighborhood farmers markets. It’s evolved into an ongoing project in the study of plant design, exploration of color theory, and pure, unadulterated food-love. Let’s be real–I like to play with my food. Thanks for letting me nerd out. Check out my Skillshare class to learn more about the inspiration, process and editing of the photos, here. Most of the the goods are from the Saturday Santa Monica Farmers Market. Oftentimes my urban garden. Sometimes a neighborhood forage. Never a store. Photos are shot with a Canon 6D or iPhone 5 in my teeny kitchen. It’s not a fancy set-up, but luckily, it catches quite a bit of natural light. Fine art prints of the food collages are available in the shop in 8×8, 8×10, and 12×12. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for custom work or licensing quotes.
Places I’ve lived: Stockton >> Los Angeles >> Stratford-Upon-Avon, England >> Lyon, France >>Los Angeles >>Bangalore, India >> Venice I’ll eat anything–at least twice. I’ve visited 20 countries and want to visit 20 million more. Apple fritters are my favorite doughnut. Nooks, crannies, and all, they are perfectly imperfect. For years I worked with numbers. Now I work with words. Right brain left brain ping pong is what I call this. I’m also available for freelance photography, styling, and consulting projects too. Other things I dig: bikes, pottery, yoga, hikes, coffee, backpacking, fermentation, urban gardens, composting. Connect on Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter @julieskitchen.
