Erika is inspired by food and culture from all over the world. She has special ties to Southeast Asia where some of her family still resides and is always on the hunt for foreign flavors, different cooking techniques and beautiful moments.
Erika's distinct style is highlighted by the fact that she's versatile. Whether it be mouthwatering messes, graphic linear perfection, or an organic effortless approach, Erika enjoys it all and is particularly interested in telling stories that might not often be told. Whether it's how does haute couture and smashed birthday cake co-exist, why New Yorker's are so obsessed with takeout/delivery culture, or what makes the ubiquitous corner store so intrinsic to city-life, Erika explores these narratives through the medium of food and prop styling.
When she's not styling, you might find her playing pool, walking her very big puppy Edward, enjoying some chilled mezcal, or traveling in hopes of finding the best pancakes in America.
