About Me"The Dirty Blonde Bombshell"
I am a vintage-inspired pin-up model - think the images that artists like Elvgren, Vargas, and Ekman are known for.
I'm here to network and meet new people to work with. I've had the honor of being published in a few pin-up magazines, and look forward to building up my publication credits with both new and familiar photographers, as well as add new images to my portfolio. I'm always looking to add more cheesecake pin-up, film noir-inspired, lingerie, classic rockabilly, Mad Men-inspired, modern psychobilly, greaser/grunge, and burlesque themed shots to my portfolio.
My background is in live theatre. With nearly 20 years of various theatrical experience, I have beaucoup knowledge about costumes, hair, make-up, and props. I do my own hairstyle and make-up, and style all my own outfits, right down to the accessories - what you see in my portfolio is from my own hand. I supply most of my own props, whether purchased at an antique store, borrowed from a friend, or handmade by yours truly. So by working with me, you get the skills and work of several people all in one.
My outfits range from a mix of retro-inspired modern wear to actual vintage items, from a collection of hats and gloves right down to some of my skirts, garters, and slips. Most of my clothing is more of a classic look, WWII-era or 50s rockabilly as opposed to the more modern pyschobilly look, but I will go either way, depending on the desired result. I can go from 1920s to early 1960s in snap, to narrow down the eras I can style, as well as the modern pyschobilly look.
I'm skilled at doing vintage styles such as victory rolls, rag curls, pin curls, the poodle, pompadours, etc. I've been doing theatrical make-up for over a decade (I specialize in gore FX), and I've been styling vintage hair for about two years now.
I do travel to Phoenix (and sometimes other cities) every few months for my day job so if you are interested in a future shoot, but not Tucson-based, don't hesitate to contact me - we can easily set up a shoot next time I'm in town. I will typically put out a casting call a few weeks before I intend to travel with details of dates and times I may be available.
If you are interested in collaborating on a shoot and creating some truly unique images, please send me a message.
