About MeI am a burlesque dancer who performs regularly in Olympia, and occasionally throughout the South Sound and Seattle. I have some experience in print work, a little in music video, and plenty on stage. I'm heavily tattooed with a petite, slim frame. I'm handy with hair and makeup (and wig styling), with an emphasis on dramatic stage/fashion looks and can help to create eclectic styles to match your concept. I also have a large and diverse wardrobe to pull from, including some wild/large scale costumes and headdresses and am not opposed to creating wardrobe for a shoot, depending on project and lead time. I really love dark, erotic fashion looks, retro noir/pulp stuff, and I adore posing for painters.
Disclaimers! My hands usually look a mess because I'm a farmer, and my feet usually look a mess because I'm a dancer (this is also why I will usually have one or two random bruises). I'm more than happy to manicure for a shoot, but those parts are never going to look Vogue-ready and I've given up worrying about them.
Available for live performance, print, video, styling, and promotional work. I keep pretty busy with rehearsals, performance, and dance class, so I often need to a bit of notice for trade shoots. I try to do a couple of these a month, but if you'd like to shoot sooner, please message me for rates. I work for myself and can schedule quite flexibly for paid assignments.
