‘By / Product’ art nude book by Mike Nicoll

New art book alert!

Do you collect art books?

I’m on lots of pages in Mike Nicoll’s new book ‘By / Product‘.  How many times can you spot me? I’m honoured to be depicted there alongside many fantastically expressive models photographed in Mike’s characteristically dramatic style with motion blur creating sensuous, ephemeral dark moods.


Simbiosa – fine art nude books by Thomas Bichler

If you’re an avid collector of art nude books you should definitely have one of Thomas Bichler’s books in your collection. He’s one of the best landscape nude photographers in Europe and I have the immense honour of being in some of his publications. We worked together for a few days in 2015 in the epic Elbsandstein mountains in Saxony and achieved some magnificent images with me poised precariously over precipices.

Here are some pages from Simbiosa 1 Alpine Nude Art: “A collection of more than 100 large-sized black and white nude art photos in combination with unspoiled alpine and subalpine landscape. A journey to amazing spots in Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Germany with some of the most beautiful art nude models of the world.”

“Is something sacred? Yes, say I with Nietzsche. I could not pray to it, but I can stand in affirmation of its magnificence. This world is sacred.” ― Daniel C. Dennett

You can also buy Thomas’s work as prints and posters. Check them out on his website.

fairy queen

The sun is just setting…

I’m modelling two fairy crowns assembled spontaneously by me and my sister Dezzy B last week from materials I collected in preparation for that time I didn’t get married in 2019. Check out Dezzy’s other creations on Etsy

This grumpy fairy of the glade is working on her most unimpressed look for when she eventually becomes crowned king of the woods. The day she finds out that’s never actually going to happen, ‘unimpressed’ will seem like a picnic in the park…

She’s the sun’s captive. She captures the sun’s light in her robes by day, and so he keeps her warm by night. She is in his orbit and he is glowing under her skin.

Fairy queen’s bridesmaid…

How can I love when I’m afraid to fall?

One step closer…

Time stands still
I will be brave

Time has brought your heart to me, and time will take it away…

I love this drawing by Henry Driftwood. The character in the face looks mature and soulful, and maybe Hispanic. And I love the little details such as the lines giving structure to the pouty lips.


let’s bring summer with us

A simple, spontaneous street shoot…

I said let’s go out and shoot some summer street fashion, so we did! I knew I needed to absorb some of September’s last rays to tide me over into the autumn. The dappled sunlight beneath the trees was dazzling and delightful.

As always, you can find a huge range of my most recent work on Patreon where I share things in greater quantities and more intimate glimpses into my creative life.


merprincess on land

I didn’t have a specific concept for this shoot, but I’ve been having mermaid fantasies swimming around in my head lately, and here felt delicately dressed up like the mermaid-turned-human who’s been brought to the palace to be a human princess. On the other hand I can see that I’m giving off maturer, witchier vibes than the ingénue and suspect I might really be the sea witch decoy…

From a recent photoshoot by Gerard, styled and edited by me.

I’m very happy with this green/aquamarine/cerulean/teal dress I bought just a few days before. The day after this garden shoot, I whisked us off to the seaside to see how the dress would fare with the billowing British winds of Broadstairs.

September 2020.
