HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I pretty much fell into it. I've always been a creative dresser and started getting tattooed from an early age and people always wanted to photograph me. then people wanted to pay me for it and I got invited to join agencies. It was a very natural process.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I love shoots where I don't look like myself. Those are mainly the high fashion/editorial shoots,I work with some amazing talent and they totally transform you.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I was a dancer until I was 16, at the time I didn't know you could have a career as one or I would have carried it on. I am also a fine artist and jeweler.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I love androgyny, so suits and masculine garments. Then the other end of the spectrum in OTT crazy outfits that transform you.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I don't really have any I don't like, but a shoot that is very simple without style or creativity are my least favourite I guess..
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I love colour, and I refuse to be told how I should look to make me beautiful. tattoos were always a rebellion for me against living up to the dumb blonde stereotype.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I'm a jeweler. I have my own business called purple poison jewelery and we are on facebook! I also make all my own costumes as I am a performer for a club called cirque du soir. I do fire (breathing etc), angle grinding and needle play/mutilating myself, for other peoples pleasure, shows.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Everything. I'm v musically open minded. My current obsession is a band called 'Sleigh Bells' and I ove Florence And The Machine. Then I listen to anything from Mastodon and Cancer Bats to Ed Sheeran and Abba (love abba!!!hahahah)
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
My motto is 'if it ain't no fun it ain't no life' I try and live everyday to the fullest. I promote positivity. I love gastronomy, fine food fine wines. The way to my heart is definitely through my stomach!! I love live music and I love good friends. Simple things keep me happy. I love dancing, and I love getting drunk and chasing boys :0)
