Could you tell us something about what you do?

I am a fashion model from England, living in Florida. I spend my time doing art and also photography of other models, currently I’m moving to New York to start my new life.

How did you first become interested in art and modelling?

I have always been interested in art, I studied at art school before becoming a model and now I spend my free time creating all sorts of different pieces.

What do you enjoy most about what you do?

I love travelling. My job allows me to travel the world to the most remote and incredible places, such as Buenos Aires, Patagonia, Italy, Istanbul (one of my favourite cities) I lived in South America for about a year and I’ve just recently moved back from living in Miami for 9 months.

What are you working on at the moment?

At the moment I’m focusing on taking my career to the next step, New York. I’m also focusing more on my photography.

What are the challenges in what you do, and how do you overcome them?

Mainly not seeing my family all the time and getting used to a place and then having to leave. But it’s all part of the adventure.

Could you describe your personal style?

My personal style is a little edgy, I like extremists and creatives.

What is your present state of mind?

I guess my state of mind right now is focus. On achieving my dreams? Haha I’m not so sure how to answer that.

What music are you listening to at the moment?

My favourite type of music is classic rock, led zeppelin, AC/DC etc. I’ve recently started listening to country music after living in the suburbs of Florida with my agent on her ranch! And I love it!

Which artists or designers inspire you?

I love the work of Vivian Maier, she was a nanny and after she died someone found a bunch of street photos that she had taken over the years and they’re just incredible. I’m also super into Peter Lindberghs work. My favourite designer is probably Moschino or Mui Mui. I just love their different and crazy designs. So beautiful.

What is the purpose of art, in your view?

To create something, to inspire people.

How do you spend your free time?

I spend my free time right now helping out on my agents ranch, tending to the horses, painting chandeliers haha. Painting in general. There’s a lot of dirty work to be done too haha. I work out a lot and keep my body as healthy as possible.
