About Me

Currently in Brisbane.

I am an experienced and creative model, as well as being an avid fan of the artistic and fashion photography genres. I'm inspired by photography, and my motivation for doing what I do is to create beautiful and strong imagery. I have worked across Australia and Japan, and have been published in Australia, in the US and in Europe.

I work predominantly as a life model for artists, painters, sculptors, educational institutions, and commercial projects. Modeling for me is a job, and as such I take professionalism very seriously and I value what I bring to the table.

I take paid assignments, and my rates are both reasonable and flexible, on a sliding scale, depending on content and use. Do let me know what your budget is and I will try and accommodate for you as much as I can. Please note that I only very very rarely agree to TF work with photographers whose work I admire on shoots that can add significantly to my portfolio. I don't work for free.

I am happy to travel to you. If you want me to come to you, book me! I don't take "maybe one day when you're in town" requests seriously.

I have worked with seasoned professionals and amateur students, and I love the experience either way. I bring an ability to pose, an understanding of light and a friendly, patient personality to the table.

I am capable of doing my own hair and make up, in a natural or simple style, should that be required, and I am equally capable of cooperating effectively with a full team. I prefer to have a team to work with when we have a complex idea in mind.

I have no body piercings and no tattoos. My skin is very pale.

I am growing out my fringe. The length of it is still waist length. I keep my hair very long and hennaed red. I do not cut my hair since my photographers prefer it long, but I will allow it to be colored with temporary dyes. It cannot be bleached. I often model for hair styling assignments and really enjoy seeing what hair stylists can do with my tresses.

What I am interested in: figure modelling, artistic nudes, beauty, fashion, editorial and runway.

What I will not do: fetish, glamour, erotic nudes, open leg, porn, men's mags, subscriber websites or anything that looks like it belongs in these genres. I don't do "striptease" type shoots.

Please be clear about your ideas, location, duration, and budget for a shoot when you contact me. Thank you for taking the time to view my portfolio. :)


Please feel free to speak to any of the people I have worked with if you would like a reference, and do also feel free to ask me about any of the people I have worked with.

This list is seriously out of date, sorry!
