About Me

I am heavily into the arts in many forms and have decided to adopt modeling and musing as another way to express myself. Unlike some of my other artistic endeavors, modeling requires collaboration between two or more people, and I find the process and challenge of that to be extremely rewarding.

I'm willing to try many things, no matter how strange, beautiful, or grotesque. (I do so love the juxtaposition of beauty and grotesquery.) I love art and I'd love to help make your work come to life. I do VERY LIMITED nude work. For my portfolio, I wish to keep the line between pornographic and artistic is broad as possible. I'm drawn to nude figures in ornate surroundings, so the body is not the focal point, but shares equal importance with all elements of the image. I am not opposed to body painting, if I will be posed tastefully. If you have a nude concept you wish to use me for, PM me. I will require monetary compensation. Implied nude is more negotiable.

*Paid work takes precedence over TF shoots*

My ethnicity provides me many different guises, be it African American, Hispanic, Italian, Indian, etc. My style ranges from some sort of deranged and bastardized death rock look, to surprisingly classic and beautiful. I have a nose ring and slightly gauged earlobes.

I will bring an unobtrusive escort to all first time, possibly second time shoots with a photographer I don't know. I will travel if expenses are paid for.

The gist: I’m passionate. I’m quick with direction. I’m eager and willing. I’m open minded.

Kind Words/Testimonials:

"Bête Noire is definately one of my favorite models that I've ever worked with. She carries herself with confidence but with out arrogance and yet maintains that sort of down to earth, fun, charismatic nature that anyone would want to be around. She is extremely versatile, well spoken and professional making her the perfect candidate to fit into any type of project and/or clientele imaginable." - Solstyce Calé

"For those of you who don't know, Bete Noire is quickly moving to Philadelphia's icon status.  She is an amazing girl, and it would not be a stretch to call her a body artist.  She can move and contort into almost any form." - S. Jenx

"How great a model is Bête Noire? She's so goo she'll get up at 5:00 in the morning for two hours of make-up, drive through a marathon, and endure parking-lot traffic along the Schuylkill, just to get "The Shot". THAT'S how great Bête Noire is!" - Craig Klein
