HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I actually started modeling for fun about a year ago, my friend Dallas mentioned someone that was putting together a calendar, So I contacted her and then did my first shoot with a girlfriend. The second set was by myself, it was such a great experience that it just kinda stemmed from there.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I always get a rush from shooting, I love to create new images for myself and I love creating art through photography! I really love doing gore, murder or suicide scenes, they are really dark and people don't understand why I do it, honestly I don't know why I do either, I just like seeing myself dead sometimes.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
No I have no training in the arts, besides grade 12 art class hah!!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I love modeling lingerie, even tho my husband hates when I do it. I'm one of the few women who thinks I look better naked or in less clothes, so I love doing implied as well-but out of respect, will never do nude, unless I got the OK. I just love dressing down & getting dolled up.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I don't really enjoy editorial/high fashion types of shoots- I always find the images come out soooo boring, unless its a very avant garde type shoot, I wont do it. -I also despise runway-
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I mean whats not intriguing about them!! They are hella hot first off, they don't hurt THAT bad, its art on your body that comes from 2 people creating a piece together. Its self expression in the realest form with the most dedication. Having images put on your body for life, is pretty serious shit.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Yes, I also love to sculpt- I do vintage looking decorations and pieces, I paint when the urge hits me and I draw. I'm starting to become more interested in creating from the other side of the camera as well.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I like all sorts of music, My first poison would have to be metal, but I enjoy everything from that to rock to electro to pop, I don't dig country.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Basically my "fun" time consists of painting, being lazy (and eating like a fat kid) shopping, playing with my hair or drinking red wine, sometimes both!
