When people see my art, I want them to experience strong, feminine energy and a sense of confidence. I believe the female form is beautiful and without it, life simply wouldn’t be the same. I hope to inspire others to not be ashamed of their bodies. I want people to believe in themselves, so they can achieve their dreams.
My modeling is genuine, but it’s only part of who I am. I’m an introvert at heart, and I love to quietly reflect on things in my own space. In some ways, I am the woman in those pictures, but they don’t tell the whole story. I’m not always confident. Like anyone, I suffer days of feeling down and insecure. Support and positive feedback really lifts me up. I’m happy when my work brightens someone’s day. It reminds me of how far I’ve come in my own healing. My sadness and painful struggles have become my strength.
There is a spiritual aspect to my work that is very meaningful to me. I have survived years of serious abuse from bullies, that left me with no identity and crippling anxiety, only to find a new strength that has enlightened my soul. I’m wounded like anyone else, but when I pose, I turn my pain into power.
These days, I’m confident that anything is achievable with the right attitude and drive. I’ve learned to keep moving forward, embracing life and enjoying the journey. Faith and belief in myself is like a fire in my soul that fuels me to create art that is unique and spontaneous.
As a model, I have control over who I work with and how I network. Through my own voice, I choose the message I share with the world. I want people to know there is no happiness without pain. You have to go through difficulties in order to learn appreciation. With modeling, I have seen there is so much to experience, and the possibilities are endless. I’ve learned to embrace life: It has so much beauty once your eyes are open to see.
I really appreciate all the lovely, inspiring people whom I’ve met on this amazing adventure. I will look back at this phase in my life as one of empowerment and determination. I’m following this path and … not looking back. It’s a strong positive feeling.
I have found my calling.
