International traveling art model & very curious human. Full-time nomad with no home base. I'm always looking for new people to work with ~ the more offbeat and creative, the better.
Yoga keeps me flexible, and a life-long background in the arts keeps me driven toward perfecting my craft, and understanding yours. (I have an MFA in sculpture and a BA in art history.) I love fine art nudes ~ using my whole body to relate to the scene around me, dig into an emotion, or create a character. My posing aims for the expressive ~ sometimes cathartic, sometimes playful and exploratory. I quickly discovered that this is not just a job for me, but a restless need ~ a way of distilling my own passion, imagination, and inquisitiveness.
I'm very open-minded, easy to work with, and serious about my commitments. An adventurous introvert who's up for the challenge, I've shot at dawn, in trees and lakes, in city streets, in 4 degree weather, and covered head-to-toe in mud. I arrive ready to shoot, with basic, natural makeup done. On set, I'm calm, patient, & focused, with an occasionally sly sense of humor. Very pale with grey-green eyes and wavy red-tinged hair. Full bush & armpit hair. No car.
Trade: I am very open to trade-for-hosting arrangements, depending on your location. Regarding strictly trade-for-pictures offers, I don't accept more than one or two per year.
Things I love:
A dash of the surreal or the absurd
Dramatically-lit black and whites
Deeply felt emotions
A chance to go a bit feral, or sultry, or soft & introspective
Folding up into intricate shapes
Shooting nudes in unexpected places
Concepts inspired by art or film
Travel is a constant ~ I am American but I spend as much time as possible in Europe. I am in Paris several times per year.
