August's Artist of the Month: Margarette Adams

Food Stylist, Margarette Adams, was born in the Philippines, her mother's native land. Her father was in the air force, which led to her family moving every two years. She loved the new experiences of moving around, and the gracious welcomes from locals that inevitably involved some form of food.

As a teenager, she was enrolled as the youngest student in a local photography class and later attended the Germain School of Photography at the Center for the Media Arts. Margarette's first photo job after school was a 2nd Assistant in a photo catalog house. She quickly became a staff photographer followed by style director, where she prepared food for dining sets and appliances.

Under the tutelage of such food stylists as Anne Disrude, Roscoe Betsill,
J. R. Rowley and Rory Spinelli, Margarette worked at perfecting her food styling technique for editorial, cookbooks, print campaigns, packaging and film works.  Margarette lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her life partner, Sheila, and their 17-year old puppy, Tanner. She is a proud supporter of the CdLS Foundation, spinal cord injury research, and the March of Dimes.

Margarette has worked with photographers such as Jamie Chung, Plamen Petkov, James Worrell, Sang An and Mary Ellen Bartley. Her many clients include Glamour, Bon Appetit, Origins,
Martha Stewart Omnimedia, Kraft and Stacy's Pita Chip Company.
