PQs Can You Dig IT!!!!!
How did you get involved in Modeling?
I began modeling officially when a cousin of my husband’s asked me to model for her portfolio back in 2002, she is a photographer. Prior to that I had not met her but she had seen photographs of me and felt I had the look she was seeking for her project.
How long have you been a model? From where did you get started?
I fell into modeling at the age of 22 which is relatively late for the industry. I grew up in a family that was very involved in the arts. My Grandfather was the Art Director at Kodak for several years. He was both a photographer and an artist and so as a child growing up I always had a camera in my face. That, along with my own involvement in the performing arts made modeling a logical and natural fit.
How many shoots have you done so far?
At this point I couldn’t even count the number of shoots I’ve done. I can safely say well over a 100. I did grow up with a very musical back ground singing, dancing and acting. Primarily my experience is in musical theater however I have done on camera jobs periodically including commercials.
Are you working on any current projects?
Yes! I am always working on projects. When fashion and styling are your passion you will always stay busy because the industry is always changing. Trends are forever evolving and I am always thinking creatively. I may become inspired by something or someone I see, perhaps from something I hear or feel and from there a concept begins to grow. Other times my inspiration is something that comes from within me and I feel a need to express that with fashion, make up, hair styling and photography. I am mindful to continue to push myself outside of my comfort zone in order to create expressive work that reaches my personal standards. I have been working on a calendar for some time now and am preparing to release that by the end of the year.
