HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I am an artist who is looking to express herself within a new medium, modeling. Bored with always drawing on inanimate objects, my last project was to become the canvas through tattoo design. Now, I am looking to contribute to artistic images that convey the alternative lifestyle.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
Grown-up Dress-up! Hehe…Seriously, it’s pure fun to blur the lines of visual and conceptual perceptions.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
The ones that don’t cover up much! LOL
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
Twas schooled in the fine points of design, both the studio arts and clothing creation… but I have always preferred most what I learned at the local tattoo shop!
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
How they can change our perception of the human form…… Straight sexify!!
WHAT DO TATTOOS MEAN TO YOU?
Tattoos are my own private art collection where my body is the gallery and I am the curator! And much love to the artist who made this possible, the talented Ms. Mariya Riot of Mission Ink in San Francisco!!
HOW DO YOU VIEW YOURSELF AND YOUR TATTOOS?
I am a citizen artist, who wears her heart on her sleeve and her beliefs on her skin. Working with the accomplished tattoo artist Mariya Riot to create a truly custom piece, I drew from my spirituality as a reminder of who I am and what I am here to do…. to Live, Breathe and Sweat the Arts!
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Picking up trash while roaming the streets of LA, I create vibrantly abstract yet deeply personal paintings. Textured layers of mixed media with found become the framework for my work where the colors tell the story behind the abstracted images… And these images symbolize what I values most... Artistic Expression within our great Counter Culture!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Have my boyfriend tie me up And …………….. Xx~ Alē
