Walnut magazine

Finally I’m able to share my images from the latest issue of Walnut Magazine (including the frangipane tart on the front cover!) The beautiful food styling and delicious recipes are by the very talented and creative Sam Wilson. Thanks for commissioning us Walnut – we loved every minute of it!

Handmade ceramics update!

You may have seen my own handmade ceramics creeping into shots over the past few months. I’ve been fine tuning my skills and finally I’m ready to launch a new website showing my new collections. The illustrated pieces are a collaboration with Illustrator and Designer Russell Brocklehurst. Here’s a quick sneak preview… watch this space…

Seasonal puds…

So pleased to finally see some local forced rhubarb in the shops! Here’s a sneaky peak at a pudding project we worked on last week.
Food created and styled by Olivia Casson.

…and while we had some meringue mixed up Olivia created these amazing white chocolate and Italian meringue ice lollies!

Winter comfort food

Another amazing day in the studio shooting winter comfort food, styled by Sam Wilson! Some gorgeous textures and vibrant colours. Watch this space…

Still loving my new studio – so much more space and light!
I’ve also been busy adding to my unique collection of props, textiles and backgrounds, with a few of my own handmade ceramics pieces sneaking in there – watch this space.

I’ve also been shooting out and about, away from the studio, something I haven’t done in a while… looking forward to more projects like this later in the year…

You can never have too many knives… or vintage lights!
The studio is slowly filling up with my wonderful finds… And I couldn’t resist uploading a few pics to remind me of my summer hols, mainly spent eating amazing food, and shopping for vintage props!

Plus some mouth watering brownies from Tarte & Berry…

Introducing… my new studio!

So, here’s a few pics of my gorgeous new studio! Still in Sunny Bank Mills, but in a newly renovated space in The Old Combing building.

It has way more space and light than my previous studio, and is an absolute joy to work in!

Kitchen pics to follow… when I’ve finally decided where to put everything!
