Creative by nature, Marité’s career has led her to navigate through several artistic worlds. Many years in fashion and textile design have taken her around the world and back. While her artistic endeavors are undoubtably influenced by her father, who while a doctor by profession, was an accomplished painter as well. Growing up in a Cuban household with her mother’s cooking gave her a a passion for food. Years of traveling opened her eyes and palette and influenced her career in the food industry. Now, classically trained in both culinary and pastry arts, she puts it all together in her food styling and recipe developing. Taking it all one step further, her original functional pottery now allows her to put not only the food on the table, but sometimes the plates, too.
Her pottery has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, among others. Food styling clients include Food Network , Cooking Channel, Galbani Cheese, Colavita, Perugina.
