The Assembly of Character

June 26, 2014 § Leave a comment

Writer, Emily Steckly and I have started work one of her next pieces. She is working on a literary portrait based on me. I am very excited though at the same time a little anxious. Having somebody paint or write about you is always a little dwelling because you see how another person views you and which aspects of ‘you’ most stand out.

Emily Steckly's Literary Portrait

Two days after the closing night of ‘Noises Off’ I traveled abroad to Europe and will be based here over the next few weeks. Before leaving Peter Coulson and I started on the first photograph of our next series and though the photograph has been released it is still unfinished.

Working with Yervant Zanazanian for Canon

May 21, 2014 § Leave a comment

Yesterday I worked with photographer Yervant Zanazanian for Canon and his wife Anie Zanazanian who designed the beautiful dresses I modelled. I worked beside the lovely gentleman Reese and met the model Teisha who also works with Vicious Models.

In June I will be performing in the play Noises Off as Brooke and Vickie (June 12th-July 21st). If you are interested in tickets the details are in “Current and Upcoming Performances”.

Immediately after the show closes I will be flying to Europe for three weeks where I will visit Sweden and Germany. I will be visiting a good friend of mine who is a terrific artist. Maybe some of you remember the beautiful painting Luke Kopycinski did of me?

Kimothy Camilleri and I are starting to take pictures together again. There are a few art ideas we want to explore together. She is one of the few photographers that I know who has the ability to transfer both her and her model’s desires in  the one picture.

Noises Off

February 27, 2014 § Leave a comment

Unfortunately because of the rioting in the Ukraine Peter and I had to postpone our travels for the exhibition. It isn’t all horrible news though because when we do eventually travel we will be able to add Paris to the list!

I am also very excited to say I was cast as, Brook in the comedy, Noises Of  By Michael Frayn. There is a small chance it may also have to be put on later on in the year because of some complications, but regardless I am excited! If the play is able to go on sooner it should be put on in April sometime.

On April 5th I will also be performing at KADO : The Lost Island of Lesbos.

Europe

On the 27th of February Peter and I will be travelling to the Ukraine for one of his exhibitions. After Ukraine we will be staying in London to do a few photo shoots. I am interested in finding some locations in both countries for Peter and I to shoot in. I would love anybody’s recommendations.

I am also working on a film with Billy-Minshull Gardner and Pete Grayson which will be shot between the 20th-22nd of February in time for my travels.

Below are two photographs taken by Peter Coulson. The painting is an art piece by Nathalie Rattner based on a photograph Jessica Eisner took of me. She is a talented artist who resides in both California and Canada.

Happy New Year

I wish everybody a wonderful new year.

I found some pictures I should have kept secret that Peter took a little while ago. I don’t think we will ever use any of the pictures from the series for anything so I was allowed to put up a few of the candids.

Myself and a bunch of other people also recently worked for Focal Point. We filmed an interesting little number which will come out hopefully sooner then later.

Lately

Peter and I have been creating many pictures lately and when I am not shooting in the studio with him I am painting there. We are traveling to Olinda Golf Course next week again which I am eager for.

I spent this morning with Hana Schlesinger at the Victorian Art museum for the Edward Steichen exhibition. I melted when I saw the Coco Chanel dress!
