Model, artist, sometimes performer and designer. Other descriptions could well include hair dye enthusiast (except supermarket-box black, that makes my head itch), high heel fetishist and 80s fangirl. I have a BSc (hons) degree in Natural Sciences, with my main subjects being Biology/Ecology with a bit of Archaeology thrown in.
I love studying and for a while I kept insisting I would return to the world of academia someday to complete my Masters degree. But then again I thought I would be bored of the modelling thing a long time ago but I've been doing it for 10 years now (professionally/full-time for 5 of those) and still enjoying being shot and hopefully providing inspiration!
My plans nowadays concentrate more on furthering my skills as an artist and illustrator. I often enjoy incorporating natural history and scientific motifs into my work as a nod to my academic background. I was born and raised in Newcastle (or more specifically, at the end of Hadrian's Wall) and was based out of London until the summer of 2009. After that I spent a year or so as a permanently travelling model; I absolutely love to visit new places and travel regularly throughout Europe and further.
In July 2011 I began the process of immigrating to the the USA and am currently based out of Los Angeles, California. The story of how I ended up in Hollywood in quite an unlikely one and would take too long to repeat here.. details can be found here and there in various online interviews!
I am still travelling as much as ever and am planning on making frequent visits to the UK/Europe and elsewhere.
