As a person and a woman I am a lady, quite organized, and I love to manage and help with art events here in Detroit, MI. I am that person who knows where almost everything is, and if I do not know, I can probably find it, even if I have never been in that space before. I love to have conversations with people about art, about animals which happen to be my first passion, about style and fashion, about science and discoveries, and about what they do and what I do. If you see me out, I may be dressed in one of many different ways. Sometimes I will go trendy, sometimes vintage, sometimes I like to channel Audrey Hepburn, sometimes I like elegant gothic, sometimes the classy little black dress, and I even have a few Eastern inspired outfits for the summer. If you want to spot me, your best bet is to look for someone much shorter than everyone else, with very long black hair, blue eyes, and pale skin, and perhaps an animal themed purse.
Modeling is simply an extension of who I am. When I pose I open myself up and share who I am in ways that I cannot share in any other way. Many times I also create a character in my mind as well. What would I be like if I were a Greek nymph or a goddess or a queen or if I have lived in a certain time? I would still be me, but I might be a more regal me, or a more carnal me, or a more dainty me.
Modeling is also my sole art form. I have long admired nude artworks, particularly those involving Greek and Roman goddesses and other similarly styled females. Even as a child I was drawn to the few nude works of art on field trips. I sought out the nude photos in books. And yet, I never saw myself as having the potential to create such wondrous forms with my own body until much later.
I began modeling in March of 2009 intending upon doing a bit of goth and perhaps some modeling in fancy Lolita and Victorian dresses and latex fashion. But I was still drawn to the beautiful art nudes, now in photographic form in the portfolios of many of the models and photographers I was admiring. However, I was nervous to do such a thing myself. I was extremely self conscious and shy about being seen naked, to the point I believe it was an actual fear of mine. After much deliberation, and intense admiration of the nude work of others’ I finally scheduled a nude shoot in May 2009. That day I walked into the studio, took off my dress, and did not put it back on for five hours. I then understood what it meant to have found my artistic calling.
Since then I have posed for many, many styles of photographs including fine art nude, art nude concepts outdoors, nudes with projection, body paint, erotic art nudes, as well as some fetish (mostly foot fetish and Shibari), bridal, lingerie, boudoir, Victorian, and many more styles I cannot possibly even begin to list in entirety. I have been the first model and the first nude model for many photographers, and I have posed for photographers varying in skill level from brand new hobbyists to published and gallery-exhibited professionals.
