HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
Actually I was behind the scenes as a makeup artist and different photographers would ask me to shoot or said I should get into it and I just thought they were trying to be nice ;)
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
The different things you can do there's so much you can do with it places you can shoot; things to wear; portraying different sides of you creativity and individualism. The possibilities are endless I love it
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
Nope, I always had a passion for art. My favorite subject since I can remember starting in elementary school. Although I suck at drawing unless you want a sweet stick figure! But I'm the black sheep in the family the "artsy weird one with all the tattoos"
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Probably pin up its just so classic you can't go wrong. Or I like a dark side with black and crazy edgy makeup. Horror is my absolute favorite but I have yet to do a horror shoot besides my makeup on Halloween ;)
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I haven't figured that out yet, I'd say nudes but I'm only willing to do implied so I won't be traveling down that road. Don't get me wrong I'm born and raised in Vegas, I get the whole sex sells idea, but it's gotta be done right and tasteful. I vote leave something to the imagination.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I love that its finally become more accepted people don't see me and cross the street. I think people are starting to realize the tattooed cultured is people who love art and have a lot of passion for different things. It is kind of like really wearing your heart on your sleeve ha. Just the expression and the stories they tell. I'm addicted I love the way it looks and the reactions I get I take the good with the bad. To each their own
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Makeup! I love being a makeup artist. The way it makes people feel and how you can see their confidence grow then you make them all dolled up. It's a good feeling!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Music I can go on forever! I listen to mostly metal and alternative types like Alexisonfire (so heart broken they aren't together anymore) A Day to Remember, Alkaline Trio, Placebo so many to name!. But my all time favorite band is the Beatles and I love a major soft spot for oldies!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Go out with my friends and just have a blast, take pictures act goofy I'm not the person that cares what anyone thinks that's for sure! Or if I'm having a low key night at home with my pets I have a Boston Terrier, Bella and a hairless cat named Abbey. They hang out with me and watch my shows Sons of Anarchy, Dexter & the Walking Dead. ;)
