About MeUPDATE: November 30th: I apologize I have been worse than usual in responding to messages over the past few months. Please know there are several of you I would love to work with and will respond to as soon as I can-hopefully within the next couple of weeks or sooner! Thank you for your patience!
If you are interested in working with me please do not hesitate to contact me and let me know about it. Just be aware that my response may be delayed and that my ability to work fluctuates and is highly erratic due to a rather irritating on-going battle with various chronic pain conditions. It's not fun to talk about; but the reality is that it prevents me from working as often or as consistently as I would like.
Essentially, you will most likely have to be quite patient and flexible in order for me to be able to work with you.
I am still reading and responding to messages many have sent me and exploring their portfolios and profiles when I can, so if I haven't responded to you yet, that doesn't necessarily mean that I don't want to work with you!
I am an artist who works in a wide variety of mediums: drawing, painting, photography, stenciling, digital art, mixed media, visual collage, audio collage, song writing, video making, poetry etc.
I have only recently begun posing as a nude model for figure drawing and painting classes and hope to continue this work in addition to pursuing modeling in the field of photography.
Considering I do not yet have much experience in the field of modeling I am currently looking for TFP work in order to build up a decent portfolio. I am willing to shoot nudes as long as I consider the work to be artistic and in good taste; I am not interested in anything simply pornographic or overtly sexual, although erotica (again if tasteful) is fine.
Body modifications I currently have are a septum piercing which I am easily able and willing to remove if necessary. I shave my legs and bikini line and shape my eyebrows. I do not shave my armpits or pubic hair but sometimes trim them. I may or may not be willing to remove my armpit hair for certain shoots, and am always willing to let any of my body hair grow.
I currently reside in the San Francisco and East Bay areas and am willing to travel depending upon distance, time, costs, and nature of the work.
