I’m Quelcy (like Quell the Sea). I’m a Pittsburgh-based food & prop stylist, event designer and creative. That’s my trusty sidekick Julep and my main squeeze, aka The Rustbelt Farmer (hence the bare feet). Yes, Quelcy is my given name. No, my parents were not hippies. There’s a story behind this name of mine, but it’s best told in person.
Living with a unique name can be a burden or a blessing, but I’ve always been grateful to be tied to an original moniker. Being “Quelcy” shaped me creatively and instilled in me a desire to stand out.
Much like my name, my professional path has not been typical. I studied architecture at Carnegie Mellon University, but after working for a start-up company, I realized I thrive when multiple, disparate activities are on my plate. I came to find inspiration in food, photography and event design. Though the mediums may be seemingly different, the conceptual underpinnings and creative processes are the same.
