Syd­ney-based Kristen Wil­son spent time study­ing and work­ing in the fields of jour­nal­ism, ad­ver­tis­ing and com­mer­cial cook­ery be­fore find­ing her niche as a stylist. “It’s ev­ery­thing I wanted to do all rolled into one… it’s an in­cred­i­ble way to be in touch with food and also be cre­ative.” As a child, Kristen spent 10 years in Pa­pua New Guinea and says she thinks a lot of her drive to be cre­ative stems from this “free and nat­u­ral” up­bring­ing. For this is­sue, Kristen styled Olivia An­drews’ Flash in the Pan story (page 84) and Sil­via Col­loca’s Ital­ian feast (page 72). In re­cent years, Kristen says she’s be­come in­creas­ingly fo­cused on healthy home-cooked food, grow­ing as much as pos­si­ble her­self at her North­ern Beaches home and teach­ing her chil­dren Lily, eight, and Bligh, four, about where food comes from.
