I had the day off, and decided to put an eyeshadow colour on my eye that had never been used on my eye before, in my professional life. Plus ‘Greenery’ is the Pantone colour of the year for 2017.
Everyday is stimulating and vastly different. My career is similar to a collection of ‘first day at a new job I’ve always dreamed of doing’ experiences, one after another… A new start time, a new role, a new location and a new team of people to both impress and congeal with. I’ve never stopped being nervous and I wouldn’t have it any other way! 😛
How did you first become interested in modelling, acting and movement
When I was 15 years old, I was awarded two weeks work experience at Vogue Australia for winning a national writing competition. During this time I met a few photographers who mentioned that trained dancers and gymnasts often make good models and encouraged me to do my first test shoot. I haven’t looked back since.
The ability to explore expression, movement and unique composition. I am constantly spoilt with variety and am ever increasingly inspired by the amazing talents of the various creatives I get to work alongside daily. Everyone on set, no matter the project, are magicians of light and illusion.
A collection of music videos filmed in Los Angeles for a new musical artist, ‘Slow shiver.’ Our first video launches incredibly soon and is a cinematic nod to the brilliance of Helmut Newton’s stills work.
Beauty and all it encompasses, is an ever changing, incredibly subjective sphere. This proves as comforting as it is occasionally disheartening in my position within the fashion, art, entertainment, advertising community. The mental pressures that exist within a profession that places extreme emphasis on the physical, can on the one hand improve your mind-body connection and general aptitude at work, yet in moments make it difficult to relax with such heightened body awareness outside of work. By now, I could construct a tome of external and conflicting comments about my body and facial architecture, both positive and negative, yet this feedback doesn’t always necessarily help me model with a level of intelligence that deems me able to mould and fit every brief. Instead of focusing on any perceived career limitation, I try to focus and extend the role of being a model, to being a role model for young women by living as healthily as possible (and relish in the positivity of that intention). Great responsibility exists when choosing a profession that the public eye follows.

Determined. I have my sights set on a few acting projects this year and endeavour to stretch my skill set to suit.
Son Lux, Bjork, The Internet, Peaches, The Black Angels, Joy Division, The Weeknd, Arctic Monkeys and Ravel (specifically Le Tombeau de Couperin).
Herb Ritts, Ai WeiWei, Yoko Ono, Stella McCartney and Sergei Polunin.
To inspire the mind to widen. Art exists in a physical form, that encourages thought and demands an emotional response from the audience, an enthralling parallel and opposing process that the artist undergoes through creating themselves. A truly connective force. Art is the ultimate distraction that in turn allows us to re-prioritise how we can live, versus how we actually live life. It has the potential to both distort reality and bizarrely, in turn, immortalise truths.
Mostly at trampoline parks or dance classes. However, when the parks and studios close for the evening, I’m often found drinking Kombucha and watching ’88-’96 Olympic Gymnastics videos or obsessing over the collective works of E.E Cummings, Neruda, Keats, Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, Oscar Wilde, Rilke and Emily Dickinson.
