About MeI'm an artist, my main projects are drawing, making music, DJing and making my own clothing and jewellery. I am hoping that with my small portfolio of self-done modeling and photography I can gain some good opportunities and have some great experiences while making art in a new medium.
I am willing to try a lot of different things, especially themed and artistic shoots and alternative/DIY fashion modeling. The sort of styles I love include punk, cyber punk, steam punk, crust punk, surrealism, hippy/bohemian, gothic, sci-fi, fantasy, futuristic, cosplay, cartoon/comic book and really just anything weird and unique. I am also interested in concept shoots. Anything feminist, anarchistic, anti-conformist/status quo would be absolutely ideal! I currently have some of my own ideas for cosplay, of characters that I've made up and drawn myself for my future graphic novel.
I am NOT willing to do anything that I would consider to be sexually objectifying, however I would consider artistic nude work depending on the shoot, so please ask FIRST. I am NOT willing to remove any of my body hair (I do not shave or wax my armpits, legs, crotch or pluck my eyebrows). This could possibly be excepted if there was an artistic reason for removing the hair.
I have also been interested in using temporary dye on my body hair in order to make a bit of a statement about my choice not to shave and how I think shaving companies are merely a money making scam, and that the "necessity" most women feel to shave these days is a horrible standard. I would love to do shoots that focus on or include areas of the body that are usually shaven, and show them unshaven.
I'm not big on the idea of lots of make-up and/or editing, and prefer natural shots. I prefer to do my own make-up if I wear any, but if there is a specific style you want done then I would be willing to work with an artist. I will not wear typical lingerie, stockings, or ridiculously high heels, unless they are somehow unique or part of an outfit where those things are not the main focus. I am mostly about confronting stereotypes of what femininity is, and raising awareness that things like make up, shaving and lingerie are NOT necessary to be feminine or sexy. I'm interested in gender f*ckery and androgynous shoots as well. If this interests you, please get in touch!
I have chosen dance and performance art because I am at about an intermediate level of poi, fire, and also beginning to lear fire/contact staff.
I've also done work as an extra in a film several times so I am semi experienced there.
I currently have long dreadlocks with a fringe and shaved on both sides. I also have piercings that I performed myself. My current piercings are my lip (side and centre), septum, nostril, navel and inverse navel, both nipples, top of ear, stretched lobe and a few other normal lobe piercings. These can all be removed for a shoot if necessary. I do not have any tattoos currently.
You can see more photographs of me and some of the clothing/jewellery I have designed and made, and some modeling I have done on my Deviant Art page. I'm always looking to do shoots of my own clothing and jewellery too, so please let me know if you'd be up for helping me out with that.
