Art is my main passion, above all things.
I love painting, illustrating, photography, sculpture, graphic design, and of course, modeling for other artists.
My current location is the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn (NYC), and I am available for modeling work anywhere that I can get to using public transportation. I'm also willing to travel for destination gigs, but transportation will need to be provided for me.
First and foremost, I am a professional and I expect you to be too.
I'm punctual, creative, flexible, and friendly. Please feel free to contact any of my references, as I have never had a negative experience or received any negative feedback from my craft.
My MAIN area of modeling expertise is in a classical/classroom settings, live figure and portrait modeling for instructors and students. Lately, I have been branching out into photography/fashion modeling as well, and I am finding that to be quite rewarding as well!
Yes, I DO model nude for live sittings and for photographers. However, this heavily depends on the context.
Typically my nude modeling is restricted to academic work, though on occasion I will do a tasteful photo shoot.
I am very comfortable in my own skin, secure with my body, and proud of this crazy vessel. Simply put, I am not interested in anything obscene or vulgar, but provocative/political/activism boundary-pushing works are something I will consider from time to time.
It should be noted, however, that I do NOT model nude for free or for trade. I will only model nude for paying gigs.
I do not bring escorts to my shoots/sittings, but I will vet you before committing to any project. I typically require anyone I work with to have a public portfolio or web presence of some kind that is linked to their actual identity. Due to privacy and safety reasons, I will not tell you my age or my address, and I insist on all of the communication between us to be STRICTLY recordable and electronic only (text, emails, etc). I do NOT speak on the phone or do video chats; as I require, and keep, meticulous records of every interaction should I need to reference it in the future for any reason.
I also possess an educational and professional background in both art and technology. In addition to being a pretty face, I can also come in handy in lots of other ways as well
