About Me

I have been drawing since I was a kid. I wanted so desperately to be like my artistic brother who never stopped drawing, not even one hiatus. I wanted to be like that and master my own style, but I ended up going down way more artistic paths than I could have ever imagined beyond drawing. Photography, collages, and painting were all areas I explored on my own and want to continue to explore, but what I'm most proud of is my photography. 

When I picked up the camera several years ago, I tried to be a wedding and senior photographer, but I realized that it was definitely not for me. It was very limiting to my creativity and I didn't want to damper my expression even if there was money in it. I wanted to capture realness and rawness in every sense of the word, but also, I wanted to get weird. I then completely changed from regular smile and pose photography to being "okay put this sheet over your head and dance around." I can't picture myself taking photos of the same poses and the same plastic smiles ever again; so if you're weird then please, please, please contact me. 

 

Modeling has also helped me in so many ways and has allowed me to smash the stereotype I've always seen in magazines and media. I want to showcase modeling as art and I am passionate about feminist outlooks on modeling that removes all expectations that models have to be tall, skinny, tattooless, and perfect. Modeling is a new journey for me and wherever it ends up taking me, it will be to show other women that they don't have to be ANYthing but themselves.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me!
