Butoh training at various workshops in Japan & US.
Years of fine art modeling for schools, classes, artists, all mediums. Quick gestures up to 4-hr single-session poses/ 3-4 week extended poses for atelier. Art history backround, butoh, yoga, excellent balance. Quaker upbringing in which I learned how to hold still peacefully like a champ. Non-camera artists, please be in touch.
