~~~Retired as of 2020~~~
Full-time American traveling art model & very curious human. San Francisco-based, but in Europe at some point each year.
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 Studio Art and a BA in Art History.) I love fine art nudes ~ using lines & forms of the 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'm very easy to work with, and serious about my commitments. An adventurous introvert who's up for a wide range of out-of-the-studio challenges, 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. A natural look with full bush & armpit hair, no tattoos or piercings.
I may be open to trade-for-hosting arrangements, if you're conveniently located in a major city. As a guest, I'm largely self-contained, and when not shooting I'll be preoccupied with my (seemingly infinite!) behind-the-scenes admin work. Regarding strictly trade-for-pictures offers, I don't do more than one or two per year.
I'm less active on PurplePort, but I've worked with hundreds of photographers and artists across North America, Europe, and Australia. For more work & references, see:
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 soft & introspective
Folding up into intricate shapes
Experimental/alternative processes (wetplates, antique cameras, etc)
Shooting nudes in unexpected places
Concepts inspired by art or film
Please clearly communicate ahead of time what you're interested in shooting so I can get a sense of whether I'm the right model for your project, and so that there are no surprises or misunderstandings. I'm happy to work with anyone from serious-minded beginners to old pros, given we have overlapping goals and interests for the work. While I have an easy-going nature and most definitely savor the occasional off-the-wall idea, that's a far cry from "anything goes."
My portfolio here represents my limits: I will shoot art nudes and portraits. I am not accepting any erotic or fetish work. For more detailed information, see here. If you have questions which are still not answered, ask before booking me. If I sense any pushiness or deliberate obtuseness on this point I'll simply stop responding and cancel plans.
I enjoy posing with other female models who work in the same genres as me. I do not shoot with nude male models.
I travel internationally as often as possible. This account is primarily for connecting with photographers when I'm traveling in Europe.
