About Me

WEBSITE | FACEBOOK | TWITTER | INSTAGRAM | BLOG | 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!)

Oh, and I really appreciate direct messages. Please don't just rely on hinting via comments/friend requests/lists/telepathy; be like this sentence.*
..........................................................................................

Welcome!

I am a professional, versatile, natural (non-diva) model, actress, dancer, writer & tea-addict.

Easy going, friendly and creative.... Many repeat bookings and happy testimonials... etc. etc. smile

Represented by commercial & casting agencies, but also take bookings directly and independently. (And globally.)

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

I'm currently available for agency work and occasional, select projects (beginners absolutely welcome!) with artists/photographers/others who have good intentions and a drive to be creative.

Home studios, local studios, exotic wonderlands, weird places, tuition/themed events/workshops: all fine by me. (No 'studio days' or free-for-all group shoots.)

MY PORTFOLIO is a mix of brand new and older favourites; either way, I always make sure my images represent me honestly as a matter of principle. Here's a dreaded phone 'selfie' I took on 18th April 2015, in which I look roughly twelve. I am (touch wood!) lucky to have very good skin without lines/wrinkles, and my dress size doesn't vary (seriously!), but my hair might look slightly darker or lighter in different images (though this is equally often the result of the different natural tones in it showing variously as red, brunette, or blonde in different lights; in actual fact it's somewhere between all of these, but generally flows along the brunette side of life. Confused? So am I).

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 early/mid twenties)
- 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.

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!), fields, stone walls & avenues of trees on my doorstep. I love shooting here and sometimes offer a slight discount as it's so convenient for me. Nearby, there are ancient ruins, rivers & parks. The streets and architecture of Oxford itself are also very easy on the eye, made famous in many a film/TV series!
If you prefer a studio, I can recommend some, local or otherwise.

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

I AM...
* Toned and flexible 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) (I'm honest enough to say I'm very slightly older than stated on this profile, which represents my 'playing age' for search-result purposes; but my images represent me fairly and I do not rely on retouching)
* 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'm fuelled by Earl Grey or green tea. Lady Grey or Chai if I'm feeling wild. :-) I've got a book you can buy. I play the piano. I modelled for a highly-acclaimed painter for a year (it was an honour). For more such unnecessary tid-bit frivolity, click here.
..........................................................................................

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 when I began modelling there were no names similar to mine (Elle/Ella/Rose/Rosa etc etc). Obviously this isn't always intentional, but I think it would be very cool if we all celebrated our uniqueness, to avoid confusion as much as possible.

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

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

A final soliloquy... (What light through yonder window breaks?)
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!

*bold. Bald is OK, too.
