How did you get started modeling?
Well, I had numerous non-professional photo-shoots for Facebook use. One day an alternative stylist noticed them and sent me a message; she was organizing a fashion show at one of the industrial clubs I was attending at the time. She liked my style and asked me to attend so we could converse. I did go and meet with her and was approached by a photographer who was acquainted with her, who asked me to take some professional photos with a 'darker' concept. Ultimately, we worked together numerous times and he helped me expand my portfolio.
What excites you about modeling?
The usually beautiful aesthetic outcome, the fact that every photo taken contains a story and also that modeling is an amazing form of expression.
Do you come from a background of training in the arts?
Ever since my early childhood, my parents were eager to expand my horizons, art-wise, mostly by enrolling me in piano classes and taking me to various exhibitions, museums and theatrical plays. Growing up, I realized I had an inclination towards literature and I spend most of my time reading or writing; I have also taken part in local literature contests, in which I've won a prize. I still visit exhibitions whenever I can and take classes on history of art.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
My favorites are anything that's related to gothic fashion, decora and punk, kitsch clothes in a seventies 'Velvet Goldmine' kind of style and some fetish or latex outfits. Also I am interested in cosplay-themed shootings and face painting.
What are your least favorites?
I don't think I have any 'least favorite' styles or outfits. I enjoy adapting to every situation and I love experimentation, so, the more difficult a stylistic endeavor, the merrier.
What is it about Tattoos that intrigues you?
I choose to view a body as a form of emotional diary on which you depict events that have shaped you, things you want to remember, or influence you in a way, or simply strengthen you mentally. I think tattoos aren't another form of jewelry, but a form of art and definitely not a simple thing, since it's something permanent yet beautiful.
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
To be honest, these days, not really.
What kind of music do you like?
I absolutely adore Deathrock, Post Punk, Darkwave, Gothic and Glam Rock.I enjoy jazz, oi punk, dubstep, alternative rock, gothic metal, new wave, industrial, ebm, psychobilly, rockabilly, hip hop, trap, coldwave, noise. And I have this obsession with Placebo.
What do you like to do for fun?
Everything. Nothing. Reading, writing, listening to music, dancing, hanging out with friends, enjoying the present of existence, meowing, drawing, blogging, shooting, DIY, clubbing, eating, being sarcastic, being cute, shopping.
