Mayhem # 190
I'm an artist and photographer, as well as a former professional model (and make-up artist). I modeled for 8 years with Elite/Chgo and Elite/NY, Karins/Paris, Fashion/Milan, and numerous sister agencies throughout the states. I model only for myself now, mainly shots for my Etsy shops (see below). This, as opposed to when I modeled professionally as a masochistic form of self-loathing. OK, yeah... the money was good.
I am looking for new faces near my home in Michigan to model for my Etsy shops: http://www.locadesign.etsy.com and http://www.etsy.com/shop/sunnyspex - Check out a photo set of previous work on flickr: http://tinyurl.com/LocaDesign
I have now been a professional writer for many years. Email me for clips.
I've worked the runway for top designers too numerous to list, although here's a sampling: Jean Paul Gaultier, Bill Blass, Bob Mackie, Sonia Rykiel, Versace, Donna Karan, Betsey Johnson, House d'Seneville, Fendi, Carolina Herrera, Claude Montana, Giorgio Armani, etc...
Not to mention I was a regular on the runway of the Oprah Show. LOL! I have video of her smackin' my hip, sayin' "Girl! Feel that hip bone! You don't got an ounce of fat on you! I gotta go feed you somethin."
In addition to that aforementioned smattering of designers, I've appeared in French Marie Claire, Italian and French Vogue and so many catalogs and ads I can't even remember.
