☆ Please read my profile before contacting me about shooting, thanks! ☆
I'm an International Model, Artist, and Photographer of Native American & Irish ancestry whose eclectic body of work has appeared in tv, print, runway, fashion, and the glamour industry worldwide. I've enjoyed the distinct pleasure of working alongside numerous Top Photographers both in the U.S. & Europe like Ulf Scherling, Rene Hoff, and Karsten Skarbal, as well as other phenomenal Artists such as ArteKaos, Giorgio Uccellini, Lucie Brouillard, Andy VanOverberghe, and Bryan Smoak to name a few.
As a model I've graced numerous fashion runways, tradeshows, publications, and events, am the resident Muse at Kaos Studios in Bologna, Italy & was broadcast LIVE mainstage via Eurostat satellite from the 2009 World Bodypainting Festival in Seeboden, Austria to over 4 million viewers in 40 countries. As well as being the inspiration in many artistic works currently exhibited in art galleries, magazines, and other venues around the world, I am featured in the pages of the Italian art book, "ArteKaos: Airbrush & Art", vol. 1, Arte Contemporanea, Emozioni di Alessandro Rinaldi, and am the book's Cover Model in a portrait entitled, "The Muse".
As a photographer I am the owner of 10th Muse Photography in the U.S. where a number of my own photographic works have garnered special peer accolades and are prominently featured in various fashion & photography portals worldwide.
When not in front of the camera, I can often be found behind it as a devoted wife, mother, abstract painter, freelance photographer, advocate of women & children's rights, in bringing awareness to & a staunch supporter of anti-Human Trafficking.

MY NUDE POLICY: I WILL DO *TASTEFULLY EXECUTED* DRAPED, IMPLIEDS, & HIGHLY STYLIZED, CLASSY (keyword), ARTISTIC, SENSUAL NUDES...HOWEVER NEVER FULL-ON, BLATANT NUDITY!! The only offers I will consider are from photographers/publications whose demonstrated works convey more to this genre than 'Guccione' shots.

If you book a shoot with me, you are agreeing to this policy & contracting. I work at a professional level and rely on this as family income and to continue with my other projects.
