For 28 years my life revolved around food, photography, my Mac, my dog (Conker), my home and the village I live in, and most of all my husband, writer Andro Linklater,
On November 3rd 2013 Andro suddenly and tragically died from a heart attack he had on the island of Eigg where he was doing research for his next book. Everything changed dramatically for me in that moment and although I am very happy still to be busy working as a food photographer, I am still working at rebuilding my life.
I am a photographer based in London and Kent, specialising in food and lifestyle photography. In addition to my commissioned work in my London studio, I have started a picture library, thePictureKitchen also specialising in food and lifestyle images.
These skills have grown out of a love of food instilled in me as a child by parents unusually interested in food for their generation. My English father was a tremendous francophile and had been brought up travelling around Europe learning to eat and drink well. My Swedish mother had an innate and ongoing love of good food and was still cooking and caring for us all late into her eighties.
