I Live, Eat, and Breathe Fashion.

I've recently moved back to Leeds and have been doing modelling and make-up jobs when I can! I worked for MAC Cosmetics over the Christmas period 2013 and it's ignited my passion for creative make-up so I am looking to expand my portfolio in both fields at the moment (

I've been modelling for around 5 years, all the work you see of mine was sought after by myself and I have relied on no one else. I fell into this after spending years thinking I would never make it as a model, because of my height and not being a size 0, but after seeing the ever changing industry I now have to confidence to put myself across to others and feel like I've achieved so much already. If it were to all end tomorrow I'd be safe in the knowledge that I have always tried my best, pushed the boundaries and could be proud of the fact that against the odds I have been a published model and achieved more than I ever thought possible for myself. In saying this, there's so much left I want to do, my ultimate dream is to be in Vogue...but Rome wasn't built in a day so we'll see about that one smile

*Limited TFP/TFCD work due to having a varied enough portfolio, and working several jobs to get by. I need every penny I can get at the moment. Travel costs are standard, I do have a railcard which cuts costs by 1/3 and advance fares are dirt cheap anyway. Please contact me for specific prices*

My heroes include:
> My Dad; Tattooist Extraordinaire, Fashion Expert, My Support System...Ever and Always
> The everyday, unsung heroes who make me proud every single day by serving their country, and doing their best to protect us back home. Each and every service man/woman I thankyou! I wear my poppy with pride for you...
> Victoria Beckham, my absolute idol!!!
> Janice Dickinson fiesty, fierce and a complete icon.
> Alexander McQueen...Innovator RIP 
> Audrey Hepburn...simplistic beauty at it's best! Wisdom beyond belief...
> Dita Von Teese- takes my breath away.
> Demi Lovato - one of the strongest human beings I've ever seen, at my age she's accomplished so much, nearly lost it all and fought back to regain her focus. She's an inspiration to all!

Shots I'd love to have in my portfolio...
> Bodypaint/Sequins/Rhinestones DONE but would like to explore further smile
> Underwater
> Scarves (Like on ANTM)
> Me as a different ethnicity
> Pin-Up/Kitch
> Completely natural, simple black and white, jeans + tshirt
> Tape over face (Think Lady Gaga in Telephone Video!) DONE
> Extremely long hair (Extensions!!)
> Animalistic (Makeup, Wardrobe and Poses)
> Circus/Canival/Freak Show
> Airbrushed Lace (Either face or full body)
> Tastful Topless-jeans from the back (Think CK, Levi Jeans, inspired adverts)
> UV body painted, tribal style (Ke$ha video inspired)
> Picture of Dorian Gray inspired
> Dripping paint (Like on ANTM)
> Wuthering Heights inspired
> Sugar Skull makeup
> Topless with extravagent jewellry, headwear and snake(s)
> Doll/Mannaquin (Makeup, Wardrobe, and Poses)
> Vintage Mink coats; very editorial!
> 1940's Wartime

These are just some of my ideas, I'm someone who likes to be involved in all aspects of a photo shoot, and feel bouncing ideas back and forth is what sets apart the weak from the strong. A developed idea comes across in a photograph better as all of the pieces fit together, whereas when an idea is dictated or half-hearted nothing flows, so I'm always open to suggestion and change, you never know unless you ask...

I'm a girl who's seen her share of heartache, in all aspects of life, and I've learnt that to appreciate the sweet we need to experience the sour. I pick myself up, dust myself off and continue to smile. I have strength in my convictions and am always true to myself, I've spent nearly 22 years learning what it is to be me, I'm not going to change now. I completely understand that my tattoos/piercings may put some people off using me for certain projects and knew that from the very start before even getting them done. They can be removed post shoot, which I am always open to, if they aren't to your taste that's fine, just please don't be rude about it. ( More photos can be seen of my tattoos/piercings on my page, which is linked at the top of the page )

I hope I have inspired you in some way, and hope we can create some amazing artwork together. I look forward to hearing from you...
