REGULA YSEWIJN is a photographer and graphic designer who was born
and raised in Antwerp where she went to art school and taught
herself to cook. In her work she is inspired by the Dutch and
Flemish Renaissance paintings she grew up with. She fell in love
with Britain after hearing a nursery rhyme when she was only a
small child. Soon after her first visit to Britain at the age of
nine, she started reading about British history and folklore, and
travelled around the country with her parents every holiday.
Five years ago Regula began writing about Britain's culture and food history on her blog ii, and in 2015 she completed her debut book ii, in which she investigates the history of British pudding and celebrates the recipes that have been passed down through generations.
Regula has photographed a number of cookbooks for other authors and her photographic work, blog and writing have been featured by Great British Food Magazine, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Saveur, Pretty Nostalgic Magazine, SBS Australia, and many more. She is also a Great Taste Awards judge.
