I’ve always done art, I go to art school and I’m a drawing major. It’s my main love! I love exploring different mediums, I’m inspired by human behaviour, anatomy and physiology. My mum is a painter as well!
On her influences:
I look up to my friends in the plus industry, a lot of them are older and so successful so they’re a big influence on me. I also look up to my art professors, I feel like they’re a really good example of people who are working successfully in the art world and they never stop practising!
I find confidence from finding the good things in myself and giving myself positive affirmations. You definitely have to be conscious that you don’t compare yourself to other people. Know who you are and keep that unique style to yourself.
People can think that because you’re a Plus model you’re really lazy, you don’t work out and you eat fast food all the time. They think you’re just getting by in the industry, but that’s really not the case. I still work on jobs where I’m disrespected because of my body, it’s rare but it’s real.
