About Me

Traveling art model & very curious human. Full-time nomad with no home base. I'm always looking for new people to work with ~ the more offbeat and creative, the better.

Yoga keeps me flexible, and a life-long background in the arts keeps me driven toward perfecting my craft, and understanding yours. (I have an MFA in sculpture and a BA in art history.) I love fine art nudes ~ using my whole body to relate to the scene around me, dig into an emotion, or create a character. My posing aims for the expressive ~ sometimes cathartic, sometimes playful and exploratory. I quickly discovered that this is not just a job for me, but a restless need ~ a way of distilling my own passion, imagination, and inquisitiveness.

I'm very open-minded, easy to work with, and serious about my commitments. An adventurous introvert who's up for the challenge, I've shot at dawn, in trees and lakes, in city streets, in 40 degree weather, and covered head-to-toe in mud. I arrive ready to shoot, with basic, natural makeup done. On set, I'm calm, patient, & focused, with an occasionally sly sense of humor. Very pale with grey-green eyes and wavy red-tinged hair. Full bush & armpit hair. No car. Friend requests are never random, but for people I'd love to work with one day ~ I'll reach out to you when I'm headed to your city.

Trade: I am very open to trade-for-hosting arrangements, depending on your location. Regarding strictly trade-for-pictures offers, I don't accept more than one or two per year.

Things I love:

A dash of the surreal or the absurd
Dramatically-lit black and whites
Deeply felt emotions
A chance to go a bit feral, or sultry, or soft & introspective
Folding up into intricate shapes
Loud colors
Experimental processes
Stark portraits
Shooting nudes in unexpected places
Concepts inspired by art or film


Travel is a constant. Most of my contacts are on the east coast of the United States, between North Carolina and Massachusetts, so I will pass through here especially frequently. I spend as much time as possible in Europe. And I am also full of wanderlust ~ with a good enough incentive, I will happily travel anywhere on the planet. Let me know if you'd like to see me in your city.
