I am an up and coming plus size model from Houston, Texas. My favorite quote is, “Beauty opens doors, but only virtue can enter.”
I have always been interested in fashion and beauty since I was younger. However, I grew up in a very small town of Louise, Texas where being full figured was not really seen as being beautiful. I was told for so long, “Oh, you have a pretty face.” It wasn’t enough for me. I wanted people to see what I felt on the inside; which was a confident, beautiful, curvaceous young woman.
I have been in the business going on two years now. I have walked in 8 fashion shows, including designers such as; "Dress Barn", "N-V-US Fashions", "The Ultimate Dressing Room", "Ashanti Nikki Fox", "AVENUE", and "Curvy Collection." I have been featured in 5 magazines, icluding; "BBW Magazine", "Plus Size P.O.W.E.R. Magazine", "SCREAM Magazine", and "D Magazine." I was on the cover of "Large in Charge's" Anniversary Issue. I was in a music video with Zaena Morisho. I have also been created into a comic book character by Red Skye Comics; "Lydia St. Claire, The Vampire Slayer." I have been a hair model for Farooq CHI and SHINE Hair Salon in the height, Houston, Texas. I was the 2nd runner up for Miss Plus America 2011 and I won PSP's 2011 biker babe photo competition.
I recently started my own business called, Arts of Utopia. It is a business that offers Photography, Makeup, Facepainting, and many types of art that is imagined by you and created by me. Arts of Utopia is made to be exactly as it's name provides: "A form of art created by your own perfect thought of how it should be."
I really do look forward to making any and every customer's dream a reality. I am just very intrigued about "ART" in itself; any form of it, from modelling, photography, makeup, facepainting, to a mural on the wall. Everything tells a story and in that moment as an artist, I become part of someone's story; part of their life. And it is another world that can be enjoyed in so many ways because its a perfect world to someone. I could not have made a better choice by choosing to create "Arts of Utopia." I have so much support and love from the people around me that I feel like I cannot fail. Its a journey I am willing to risk, and sacrifice for because doing this is my "Utopia." It is my perfect world!
I love when I walk into a room, and people actually notice my curves. They look at me and love me because they see a beautiful woman who loves herself.I think that my best curve is my smile. I believe a smile can make someone's day, and has the ability to change someone's life.
