I love modeling and take my work seriously. I strive to work as a partner with the artist or instructor, to set the stage for creative work to emerge.

The beauty of the human body inspires me with its complexity and its simple elegance, and I am fascinated with the dynamic between the model and the artist: their interaction calls forth the artist's creative energy.

I am blessed with a body that is aging well and with the opportunity to use it in this amazing work, which I approach with an openness of body and heart.

My gratitude and appreciation go out to the artists whose work is featured on this site, and to all those I am privileged to work with.
