I am an American artist living in Rome, Lazio, Italy. I model and do freelance work as an artistic expression in collaboration with talented photographers and other artists.
My Italian language skills are remedial. Contacting me in English is helpful if you need to explain something complex. My rates are reasonable.
Sono americana e abito a Roma. Parlo inglese e un po' italiano. Mie tariffe siano ragionevoli.
I prefer at this time to only consider classical art style projects.Where To Find More

Asked to be a featured member of The Cougar Club, one of their fans put together this video where I was chosen amongst the beautiful women selected to be featured for this promo. The Cougar Club PromoAdditional NetworkingTwitter.com/StudiodiMareLinkedInAbout Me:
You can call me Smiles. I'm an artist, designer, writer, metalsmith, and model. I have my BFA in Metal and Jewelry Design and my MFA in Media Design. I enjoy working with artists and other creatives.Here For:
Interested in modeling for art, to have fun, and for additional income. I prefer to focus on art modeling. Please take a look at my portfolio to get an idea of the type of work I like to do. My favorite types of modeling include outdoor landscape nudes and creative studio work. I am not interested in doing erotic or fetish scenarios as I am not that kind of nude model.
I am NOT here to meet a boyfriend, get a date, or just make friends to hang out with. Sometimes friendships happen naturally from connections made here and that's great when it does, but it is not what this site is about for me. I consider this to be a professional networking forum to find modeling work and business connections. Please respect that if you are interested in contacting me and do not waste my time trying to keep me on the phone asking me endless questions about minute details that should be kept simple and brief.T/F Requests
I'm asked often for TF requests with promises to boost my portfolio, put me in touch with other opportunities, etc. Sorry, but I'm not interested. I am not seeking to be a career model. I do it because I enjoy it, I want to contribute to an artistic project, and to be paid. End of story.Recommendations/Feedback
