About Kasumi

Kasumi was born and raised in Japan. After graduating business school in Japan, she came to the U.S. to study English, drawing, painting, printing, photography, sculpture and graphic design, and graduated from University of Hawaii with a BFA in painting.

She moved to Miami in 1987, where she now lives with her husband and their two children. In 1990 Kasumi established a graphic design business, with her husband, The Lofflers design Group, Inc. While giving art direction on a clients photo-shoot of food, Kasumi found that she had a talent for making the food look good. This came from her love of cooking and previous experience in the catering industry. Since she understands photography, filmmaking, lighting, and graphic design, it is easier for photographers and art directors to communicate with her. She says ”food styling is a combination of sculpting and cooking, both of which I love to do”.
