I have always just described myself as a small town girl and I still do. I was born in raised in Skiatook Oklahoma then in 2008 I moved to Florida where my adventures began. I became involved in the tattoo community almost as soon as I moved, attending my first convention in January 2009. I met my tattoo artist and best friend, Miss Mindy from Studio XIII right before I attended the convention. She has done the majority of my tattoos and still to this day is my favorite artist. I did a little modeling but still focused on school. Soon after I picked up a job at the local musical venue in Cocoa Beach, I met so many awesome people and was fortunate enough to travel and go on the road with some bands. In 2010 I moved to Huntsville Alabama to work for a government logistics company, it was interesting but not so much for me. While I was there I traveled overseas for the first time and went to Ireland and Paris. I completely fell in love with Paris and swore I would be back. During that time I wasn’t modeling or really taking pictures, I needed a break from the industry to focus on me. In 2011 I moved to Savannah Georgia where I still am today living with my Mainecoon cat, Sake. I attend the Savannah College of Art and Design majoring in photography and working on my minor in ceramics. Going to SCAD has been the best thing I have done with my life. I’ve networked and met so many amazing artists (of all mediums) and grown so much as an artist myself. I got back into the tattoo scene after moving to Savannah. I met (what I like to call him) my god father, Tony Olivas, and things have been going ever since. I’ve been lucky enough to brush elbows with some of my other favorite tattoo artists and been able to chat with them about art and whatnot. I also met my wonderful Savannah family at The Butcher Tattoo and Gallery. I’ve gotten a few pieces from Jimmy Butcher, Kelly Mcdonald and Cory Hand there and I can’t wait do more with the shop and the gallery. My modeling career wasn’t something I was so focused on but in 2010 things began to pick up and have still been steady since. As long as it doesn’t interfere with my schooling I will always be willing to shoot, not so much for the modeling side of it, but being able to learn from other photographers. I was honored in 2012 Steadfast Brand asked me to submit a set to them, and I finally got to work with one of personal friends Mary’D. After I shot with her I then shot with Inked Photography, and have a couple times now. I absolutely love doing collaboration shoots and each time that’s what Ernie and I have done. In September 2012 I moved to France to study abroad, I was gone for three months in total, two months in France and a month in Ireland. Traveling through Europe was a dream of mine since I was just a little girl; I am proof that if you want something bad enough and work hard for it, you can achieve it! My motto in life is walk tall and always carry your head high; be confident not cocky and never be tamed.
I will not ask for payment for shoots, everything I do it tf*. I have a bubbly personality and I've never once had an issue with any of the photographers I've worked it. I have tattoos all over my body and also piercings. If you have an issue with this then please do not contact me for a shoot, UNLESS it is a special occasion and you know me WELL. They are a part of who I am and I will not change that. I have lots of ideas for shoots in my sketchbooks that I've written down over the years. Please feel free to add me on Facebook, Google+, etc to see more!
So if you're interested in shooting please just email me =]
