About Me

My name is Cherokee, but everyone calls me Che. I am petite with curves in the right places, tiny and mighty. I am pierced & tattooed, and plan on getting more [ink]. I love posing for the camera & for artists! I'm an experienced art model working with local painters, classes, & art schools. This is something I really enjoy. I also was an extra as a nude zombie in a local feature-length art film by Rio Veradonir.

I am interested in different areas of modeling such as alternative, pin-up, retro, glamour, fetish, artistic nude, tattoo, glamour, vintage, theatrical, erotic, burlesque, alternative fashion and products, fantasy/surrealism, nature, activism, and experimental. I'm not interested in pornographic work, so please do not ask me.

I'm looking to expand my portfolio. I love working with different kinds of people with crazy & creative minds and visions. I am also interested in working with other Native models/photographers/artists. If you would like to schedule a shoot with me, shoot me a message. Please provide info such as the date & location of shoot, the nature of the shoot, a link so I can see your work, references, and whether it is paid or TFCD. May bring escort to certain shoots (nudes, etc) for my safety & comfort.
