HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
It was about 7 years ago that I decided I wanted to be a pinup/fetish/alternative model. My sister and I had really just discovered some of the world’s most famous models of today such as Dita Von Teese, Masuimi Max and Sabina Kelley and decided we really wanted to get into that type of modeling.
So we just took raunchy photos of each other in beautiful lingerie for fun and it wasn’t for about another 5 years that I really started getting into professional modeling with actual photographers.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I’m still fairly new to modeling but I really love doing less mainstream photo shoots where I can be as creative as possible. Turning photography into more of an art project rather than just sexy photos is what makes being a model more exciting for me.
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
I really don’t, I’ve had pretty much zero training in both modeling and burlesque which is why I really have to work hard when I’m in front of the camera or on stage.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I would have to say vintage lingerie and beautiful corsets.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
There really isn’t anything I would NOT model in, I’m keen for it all!
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
I’ve always had a fascination with tattoos, even at a very young age I always knew that I would be covered in tattoos when I grew up. I guess this has something to do with my love of art and always being an artistic child.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Yes definitely! I’m a professional Burlesque performer and am currently working with a group named “Fetish Burlesque”. I’m definitely not your typical Burlesque performer I like to think of my shows as “Gorelesque” and I really enjoy pushing the boundaries and shocking the pants off my audiences!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Gosh soooo many different types! I really couldn’t pick one favourite band. My taste in music varies from heavy Goth metal bands such as; Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie and Metallica to 80’s glam bands such as Poison, Aerosmith, White Snake, Motley Crue and Guns n Roses to soft emo rock bands such as City and Colour, Dashboard Confessional and Snow Patrol.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I really just enjoy either having drinks with friends or chilling out on the couch with my American bulldogs watching gory horror films and pigging out on chocolate and or popcorn.
