Erika Joyce is a New York City based food stylist, prop stylist, and recipe developer available for local and location-based projects. She has experience with print, advertising, live television segments, packaging, SMTs, video production and cookbooks. Prior to food styling, Erika worked in fine dining restaurants in New York and New England as a pastry chef for 6 years.
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.
Erika is available for hire as a food stylist, prop stylist, recipe developer, and for creative direction/collaboration.
Erika is particularly interested in telling stories that might not often be told. Whether it’s how 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 Erika is not styling, one 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.
