About Me

Welcome to my profile!

I am a lively, disciplined, and enthusiastic model whose passion is to make art and to actualize other artistic visions! I aspire to create compelling work with my dance technique, muscular tone, acrobatic capabilities, and desire for experimentation. 

Fine art nude is my current specialty, but am also do glamour, editorial, or lingerie/boudoir! I do very selective fetish. I absolutely love to incorporate acrobatic training and dance skills.

I enjoy participating in artistic projects that involve fleeting or agile movement, contorting bodies, body-scapes, striking poses, and experimentation with light. I am interested in examining the beauty and grotesque complexities in human nature through expressive gestures and facial expressions, playing with various props (including fabrics), and posing against natural splendors.

I am based in Santa Cruz, but make my way to the greater Bay Area a LOT.

What can you expect?

"Vivian promised me a great location for our outdoors shoot but the place was crowded so we drove further to another more secluded location. We chatted away as we walked to the cove, shared stories and then proceeded to shoot amongst the rocks. The ocean was rough and she was sprayed with cold water, but she was undeterred. The rocks were sharp but she never winced or lost her poise. She had a ready smile under the blazing sun and brushed away the cold breeze as if it was nothing. She's stunning, is a real trooper and amazingly creative. Her poses were amongst the best I have shot and she is in total control of her body. We met as strangers but we departed as friends and I have to say that we will shoot more. And catch more of the breathtaking beauty that she is and of the place along the Pacific coastline she calls home." Read less

"Vivian is one of the hardest working, smartest models I've had the pleasure to work with--she was ready on time, and while she claimed she was feeling a little under the weather she truly gave it her all (and I couldn't tell she wasn't feeling 100%)--she really gave it her all! She knows her stuff, had a great sense of her body movement and awareness, and came up with more creative ideas than we had time for--I will definitely be working with her again (and many more times if I get the opportunity). Work with her, you will be glad you did!" Read less

"What a fun shoot with VivianCove! With no real agenda we wandered the streets and came away with some of my favorite shots of the summer. Throughout the afternoon she was friendly, professional, flexible, creative, collaborative. Vivian’s movement and dance skills brought a natural, graceful artistry to the images and her honest, emotion-filled expressions gave the photos an edge I was looking for. I’m so impressed with her style and versatility as a model – I can’t wait to work with her again!" Read less

"Vivian is absolutely wonderful to work with! She's smart, funny, easy to work with, takes direction well and is also capable of providing creative ideas. Her dance background provides her with an excellent sense of how she presents herself to the camera. Her posing skills are excellent all the way down to the "little things" like hand placement. She takes direction well, but needs very little. She is "plug and play"! I really enjoyed working with her and had a very high percentage of "keepers" from our shoot. I give her my highest recommendation." Read less

"A real joy to photograph. Her exuberance for my work made me feel quite special and was something that kept me energized throughout the photoshoot. Further to that it was special for me to be one of the only ones to take her away from her element momentarily and put her in another realm...and she acclimated herself to it just nicely..."
