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…


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.

Enigma’s music video for Sadeness (Part II)

“All your life /
You’ve been waiting to be free /
Trade your pride for ecstasy /
That’ll make you /
Reach the sky” – Sadeness (Part II)

Last August I acted in a music video for the band Enigma‘s new song Sadeness (Part II). The song was released in October.

What do you think? …I’ve noticed both the song and the music video have had mixed reactions from hardcore fans. I don’t know how to to talk about music, so I won’t say anything about the song. Some fans have asked if there’s a version of the video without pixelated-private-parts. Well I haven’t come across one. I guess I could start claiming that that’s actually just what I look like naked.

The story in the music video has two characters – a dark, brooding monk and a mysterious seductive woman. You’ll notice that I played the latter. At first the mysterious woman is a luring temptress.

The monk takes her to his decadent den of dark desires.

Now the woman is a prisoner.

There is some inevitable running away and chasing.

And an ultimate fight between good and evil.

And in the end, it turns out…well, I shouldn’t spoil it. So I guess you should just watch the video.

I wrote the introduction to this fantasy art book by Russ Thornback and also feature a few times in it. Lots of hard work has gone into the creation of this heartfelt conceptual montage. Now we just need to bring it into existence! 

Phantasmagoria. A Fine Art Photography Book. – A hardcover book with over 110 beautiful images inspired by dreams, fantasy, myth, magic and surreal experiences. – http://kck.st/1TxZ6rm

I would simply like to make the following casual comparison observation regarding two different photo composites by different photographers at different times.

These are ‘Blue Moon’ by Max Operandi, 2012, and ‘Moon Worship’ by Thornback, 2014.

I suppose I’m happy to be typecast as the disembodied melancholy blue bottom.

‘In the Air’ Photo Challenge

So, I just heard from Thornback that one of his images in which I feature won ‘GURU’S TOP PICK AWARD’ in the ‘In the Air’ Photo Challenge on gurushots.com.

Thornback creates wonderfully northerly, billowing, wide-open fantasy landscapes inspired by nature, Northern European folklore and his wild imagination.

It was a privilege for me to participate in the making of some of these images one chilly morning down on the bleak grey Somerset sand in September 2014. The shoot was planned and executed with military precision. I won’t share the secret of how I managed to hover above the water but it didn’t involve hiring my stunt double.
