My name is Haley and I am a Toronto-based culinary artist who works in a variety of mediums including photography, illustration, printmaking and cooking.

I trained at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Vancouver and have been cooking professionally for seven years. Two years ago I began to turn my attention to photography, food styling and design. I produce an online magazine called Food Union, which features my photography, food styling and recipes. Recently, I have had the privilege of working abroad hosting pop-up dinners in Milan and Rome, completing a three-month chef residency in Fez, Morocco at Restaurant 7 and doing photography and design work for the Anna Tasca Lanza Cooking School in Sicily.

I am available for food styling, photography, illustration and design. I regularly work on a variety of custom work for clients from designing logos, business cards to custom illustrations, photography and private dinners. I love to collaborate with other artists, food stylists, photographers and chefs: if you have an idea, reach out!
