Who I Am & What I Do

Self Portrait

Self Portrait

I am a tiny freelance model, self portraitist, and creative living in the Detroit, MI area. I have a classical and sensual aesthetic. My style is often focused on my long hair and unmodified skin, and a flowing posing style.

I also work with several Detroit events like the DAMNED Show, Corpus Illuminata, the Purgatory Film ExhibitionKrampus Night, Small Wonders, the Detroit International Festival of Animation (DIFA), Halfway to Halloween Detroit, the Detroit Artist Bazaar, and Detroit Rummage.

I’m a Creative who enjoys collaborating with others in addition to creating on my own. I also make needle felt critters, jewelry, and relaxation videos.

I’ve gone from being a very shy person to someone who enjoys getting to know people, helping and advising people, and producing events. Of course I now pose for many, many people and share my work with people all over the world.

Why I Pose

Posing is simply an extension of who I am. When I pose, I open myself up and share parts of me. 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.

My Modeling Story

Photographer: DVS

Photographer: DVS

I have admired nude artworks since I was a child. Those involving Greek and Roman goddesses and other similarly styled females really fascinated me. However, I never saw myself as having the potential to create such wondrous forms until much later.

I began modeling in March of 2009. My intention was to  do a bit of goth and some modeling in fancy EGL and Victorian dresses and latex fashion. After much deliberation, I finally scheduled a nude shoot in May 2009. Since then I have posed for many styles of photographs including fine art nude, art concepts, some fetish, lingerie, Victorian, and vintage.  I have been the first model and the first nude model for many photographers. I have posed for photographers varying in skill level from brand new hobbyists to published and gallery-exhibited professionals.
