Lisa has enjoyed playing with her food since childhood. What began as simple bread balls made surreptitiously under the dinner table (so as not to anger her father!) developed into a career. She has been a food stylist and recipe developer in the Chicago area for more than 25 years.

Lisa studied architecture and design until her senior year of college, when to the dismay of her parents, she switched her major and began again. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Science from Iowa State University. She continues her studies to keep abreast of best techniques and current trends. She studied chef's techniques at Culinary and Hospitality Institute of Chicago. She learned techniques for ice cream styling, one of her specialties, at Food on Film. She has also studied cake decorating, Chocolate Artistry with Pam Vieau, and Pulled Sugar with Laurie Bradach. Food styling combines her passion for food and love of design.

Lisa is creative and very easy to work prima donna here! She is happy to provide input when desired, and equally content to follow your vision to the letter.
