HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I first started modeling in 2008, when I worked as a makeup artist. On one of the sets, a model hadn't turned up, so the photographer asked me to step in. I realized at that point how comfortable I was in front of the camera and that I loved it.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I love everything about it from styling to makeup, but I think what excites me most is I get to be a different character all the time. I love the challenge of being a chameleon and molding into different shapes and poses.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Latex and vintage dresses! The feel of latex is like no other. I'm a big fan of 50's vintage and I love the whole elegance of having the classy outfits on.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
One of my least favorite outfits was for a shoot I did years ago, it was just plain black jeans and black top. I found the styling to be very bland. I think anything that has no creativity to it, I dislike!
WHAT KIND OF SHOOTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?
I would love extended further on more pin-up and latex fashion shoots. I would like to add more creativity to both and some attitude!
CLASSIC PINUP HAS BECOME A HUGE PHENOMENA LATELY, WHAT ABOUT IT FIRST CAPTURED YOUR INTEREST?
I've always had an interest in pinup and I admire icons such as Betty Grable and Bettie Page, they have such a rare beauty. I become more interested in pin-up about 6 years ago. I just love the sexy lingerie blended with class, the gorgeous hair and the blood red lipstick that just finishes it off beautifully.
HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH MODELING?
I'd always been inquisitive about fetish modeling, since I learned about Bettie Page. I first got into fetish modeling when I saw a fetish image of Dita Von Teese, she definitely caught my eye and brought this daring style into fashion. I was eager to try that out and I have to say I really enjoy it!
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
Oh definitely, I see a lot if pin-up an fetish styles are being worn by famous people and mostly in the fashion world. I think people now realise that it's okay to be daring as long as you wear it right and have fun with it!
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Yes, I'm a vocalist and writer for Blind Vanity an industrial/rock music project of mine. It's a different, darker side of me and I collaborate with various musicians and producers to create my songs. I'm currently working on producing an album. I also work part time as a makeup artist.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I like a variety of music from experimental, electronic industrial/ alternative metal to ambient and gothic. However, I keep my mind very open with music, anything original and unique grabs my attention.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I love traveling and exploring new places around me, eating at interesting places with friends and writing.
