About Me

WEBSITE | FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | BLOG | TESTIMONIALS | TRAVEL INFO

My profile notes, like me, are
1. never going to win any awards for minimalism, BUT
2. jaw-droppingly organised.

2015: Australia, US, Canada, Europe, Asia, South America. (Ask for details!)
..........................................................................................

Welcome!

I am a professional, versatile, natural (non-diva) art/commercial model, actress and dancer.

Represented by commercial & casting agencies, but take most bookings directly and independently.

The NUTSHELL

I am very expressive and emotive, and personally find images the most appealing and interesting to look at when they show some character and feeling (authenticity, naturalness, femininity, moods, intrigue and sensuality, etc.), and I hope/think this probably shows in my work. My dance background and empathy has instilled in me a huge and largely unconscious understanding of body/facial language and movement, which helps my posing.

Available for and experienced in:
- ART (anything beautiful/interesting/experimental; nothing 'adult')
- TV/Film (standard southern-English/RP accent; playing age 20-25-ish)
- COMMERCIAL (Fashion, Lifestyle, Dance/Sports, Wedding, Hair/Beauty)
- GLAMOUR (if it's done beautifully, with elegance and subtlety, e.g. like these)

...I work with photographers, painters and artists of various media, whether amateur hobbiests or experienced industry professionals, for exhibitions, workshops, commercial publication or for-the-fun-of-it creative portfolio building. I welcome all enquiries, questions and ideas, whether it's last minute or far in advance, and wherever in the world you are.

A note about MESSAGES (in bottles)

If you'd like to work with me, now's an excellent time to get in touch! :-)
...Please don't just rely on hinting (via comments/follows/telepathy); direct messages are always best and appreciated! 

(I do take bookings several months in advance, but am often available for short notice shoots or things in between, so don't be afraid to get in touch anytime; I'd love to hear from you!)

TRAVEL...
As well as flitting about within the UK, I visit these places regularly (e.g. about once each per year):
EUROPE
(Italy, Germany, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, France, Scotland, Belgium, Norway, Iceland, Wales, Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands), & sometimes AUSTRALIA, ASIA, USA & CANADA.
...Just ask for details, or to influence my itinerary. Excuses to visit your part of the world are welcome.
* I travel internationally for modelling jobs (from the Scottish Highlands to Penzance, from Mexico to Iceland and from the Mediterranean to the Middle East). I love it.
* It's extra good if you actually make a booking rather than just say 'let me know if you're ever in x/y/z place' - that way it's in the diary and I can conjure a trip around it and we all win.

....Or you can come to me!
I live 'out in the sticks' in Oxfordshire and therefore have acres of ancient woodland, open spaces & flowers/bluebells/cornfields (seasonal!) on my doorstep. I love shooting here and offer a slight discount as it's so convenient for me. Otherwise, I can recommend studios, local or otherwise, or some beautiful outdoor locations near me (woodland, ancient ruins, rivers, parks, fields, stone walls, avenues of trees... Oxford itself is also very easy on the eye!

..........................................................................................

I AM...
* Toned, flexible and slim with feminine, classical curves (my posterior has been described as 'ample' but, hey, it gives me a 'perfect' 0.7 waist-hip ratio).
* Represented by commercial and TV/film casting agencies, highly experienced in artistic nude work, happy and effective in a range of styles
* Dance trained (see section below). I use my love of movement and stories to add grace and expression to your vision.
* 5'7.5, UK size 10 with a unique and natural (but versatile) look: wild hair (naturally curly), 'English Rose' pale skin & blue-green eyes.
* Unpredictable... My face is wildly asymmetrical but it kinda works. My hair can look blonde, brunette or red depending on the light.
* One of those non-smoking/non-drinking/healthy lifestyle/lucky types often genuinely confused for being a 20-year-old (= good skin)
* Confident enough to deliver as well as thriving on new experiments
* Friendly, absolutely reliable, very easy going and always being described as 'calming'!
* Add-able on FACEBOOK. Accept no imposters! :-)
* Slightly addicted to BLOGGING about my modelling experiences (with fresh new images twice per week - far more than you'll see here!)

D * A * N * C * E
A life-long passion; I have trained in many different styles since the age of 3.

VIDEO: Watch a 100% improvised, unplanned solo (filmed as a last-minute favour by Mark Bigelow)here.

Styles currently doing: Bellydance (see below), Latin, Ballroom and Commercial (aka Hip-hop/Urban/Street).
* Bellydance/Raqs sharqi (Arabian, Turkish, Egyptian, Tribal & Fusion) - performed with troupe.
* Hip-Hop, Street, Jazz, Tap and Character - exams taken to a high/professional standard. Many university performances
* Ballet & Contemporary - exams taken to high standard. I can pose (simply) en pointe.
* Salsa (performed for demonstrations regularly whilst at university)
* Flamenco, Bollywood, Gypsy Dance, Tango - some experience
* Garifuna/Punta (aka 'bootyshake') - taught by locals in Caribbean Central America! ;-)

..........................................................................................

MUSE-ISH MISCELLANY
* I am proud to have an extremely high proportion of re-bookings from artists/photographers. Click here for a few testimonials.
* Although modelling is my occupation, my integrity is more important to me than money; I will (and quite frequently do) turn down paid work if I don't think I'm the girl for the style of the job, and can be a little selective over who I work with, simply because I want to continue loving this job (this has absolutely nothing to do with your level of experience; I'm very beginner friendly!). Sidenote: I'm afraid I don't consider publication in men's mags (or similar) an 'opportunity'.
* It's rare that I am given any direction whatsoever on shoots (though I'm perfectly happy to be directed if you know what you want!), so my portfolio generally represents my own natural posing & movement.
* You get what you see. I don't accept/include images for my own portfolio in which my body shape has been 'liquefied'/altered; I represent myself fairly. Yes, I might look incredible nipped/tucked/inflated... But I'd rather be credible. (I don't mind in the slightest if photographers want to do this stuff for their own uses.)
* I modelled exclusively for an internationally-renowned painter for a year (3/4 times a week; not from photographs); I'm good at keeping still! It was an honour. You can see some results on my website. I still model for him sometimes (and am available for work created with various media).
* Here are some videos.
* I'm a full time model and writer (a general resume is on my website). Other skills include: piano/music (see videos on my facebook page here), dance (see above), languages and yoga.
* I'm fuelled by Earl Grey tea. Or Lady Grey or Chai if I'm feeling wild. :-) (No coffee, alcohol, smoke, meat or fish.)
* I'm very very experienced at modelling for tuition/workshops (boudoir, fashion, nude, portraiture, wedding...). I'm relaxed, friendly and good at putting people at ease. I can pose with or without direction, as required.
* I'm pleased to announce the fruit of several months' coordination and three years of my happy deviation into a life of art modelling: an official print book, 'Faerie Garden', is now available for purchase, thanks to the kindness and generosity of the artists involved! Read all about it here, and you can view/purchase it here, with a proportion of any profits going to Amnesty. Thank you.

..........................................................................................

HAIR, MAKE UP, WARDROBE AND IDEAS
* I come to shoots with my hair naturally wavy/curly, unless something else is requested in advance. I can style it myself, or if you feel like hiring a hair stylist, that's always fun; it can make such a huge difference to my look and get you some extra-striking images!
* I am able to do my make up to a high standard, from 'natural' to 'evening/glamorous' (most of what you'll see is done by me); if you want extra bold/intricate make up, I can recommend or help find a make up artist.
* My wardrobe collection is vast and diverse. (My personal taste is eclectic/colourful/feminine/bohemian/glamorous.) I can provide lots of things in different styles for shoots, including ballet tutus, skirts and pointe shoes, wedding dresses (Vintage Victorian and modern) and bridal corsets, bright sports/dance/yoga-wear, colourful and casual fashion, glamorous evening dresses and sophisticated ball gowns, beautiful lingerie (lace, silk, sheer, flowing, vintage, diaphanous, bright and modern...), romantic pre-Raphaelite clothing, plus jewellery, accessories, props, isis wings (I have two pairs of these; they're bellydance props!), silk dance veils, world costumery and lots more to add texture and interest to imagery. I have a habit of bringing too much, so you will be spoiled for choice.
* If you want to work with me but aren't sure what theme/style you'd like to experiment with, I have a list of ideas I haven't yet done which would make for some fresh and interesting images. Just ask!

..........................................................................................

BOOKINGS
Although I love my job and feel lucky to do it, I work hard and modelling is my full-time (yes, tax-registered) income so I expect to be paid reasonably for my time, skills and experience.
No 'TF'; I honestly just don't have the time (unless you want to boost my agency portfolio with a lightning-quick turnaround of seriously amazing high-res images...). Thanks though! Every shoot is a collaboration for me and I get quite excited about doing the best I can on any given booking.

I take respect for other people's time very seriously and hope that you will do the same when booking me; if you have to cancel a booking within 7 days of the arranged date, I will be understanding but may ask that you pay the full amount regardless, so that any costs can be covered. (If this happens, I may view the payment as credit for a future shoot, depending on the circumstances.)

..........................................................................................

MODELS
* I'm always happy to help (with reference checks, etc.).
* Here's something I wrote for women. :-)
* Sorry to have to mention it, but it's getting a bit silly now: It's lovely if you like my work but I would massively appreciate it if new models would stop naming themselves names which are embarrassingly similar to mine (Elle/Rosa... etc.) or those of other models. It causes confusion and you should celebrate your uniqueness as I did when I began (when my name was completely unlike any others) - thanks!!

..........................................................................................

Have a nice day, and I hope to hear from you!

A small soliloquy...
I love it when photographers/artists get in touch via a message, without just relying on lists/comments/friend requests/subtle hints/telepathy to get my attention. Although they're appreciated and I'm grateful, I regretfully don't always have time to properly register them, pester for a declaration of intent or chase people (I'd rather wait for a proposal), whereas I always reply to direct messages as soon as possible (usually quite promptly, unless I'm in the middle of nowhere with no wifi, in which case you can guarantee I'll be waving my phone in the air desperately for signal...). DIRECT COMMUNICATION is a wonderful thing! I accept all friend requests indiscriminately every few months, though have never really understood their purpose. :-) Thanks! :-)

Important Note...Artist Q&A!
Q: Can I make a painting/drawing from an image I've seen of you?
A: Probably, BUT You will need prior permission from the copyright holder as well as from me, and there may be some conditions. Please enquire first and respect the law with regards to creating derivative work, as well as respecting my role as the subject. Thanks!
