AA: I tapped into my creative side after taking a break from my career while I raised my kids. I don't have a background in design, but I’ve always had a good eye for style and have grown as a designer through the trial and error of creating.
S@H: How did you earn the name The Sweets Stylist?
AA: I was really the first to bring fashion and design to sweets. Since dessert is the final vestige of a lovely gathering, it should be the most memorable course. There isn’t a lot of fanfare around dessert, but it’s the perfect canvas for beautiful design.
S@H: How would you describe your style?
AA: I pair fabrics, crafts and beautiful vessels with sugary confections to make gorgeous displays for my clients. I love mixing what’s traditional and expected with what’s bold and unexpected, especially when it comes to pattern and colour. My favourite part of the creative process is inventing the palette.
