I’m Michael McMurtrey, and I’ve been a graphic designer for over 30 years. When not working at the computer, I enjoy hanging out in the kitchen and I like to consider myself an amateur chef. A few years ago my love of cooking and my passion for design merged when I was introduced to the world of food styling. Food styling is the art of presenting food so that it looks as appealing, tasty, and fresh as possible, usually for the camera. See, you eat with your eyes before you take your first bite, so I really enjoy finding creative and clever ways to present my dishes to family and friends. It doesn't take a lot of extra time but it shows and makes a big impression on my guests. I hope that I can inspire you to tap into your creative side with my simple yet effective ideas.
