I did know I looked sexual because of my shapes, but I wasn’t feeling comfortable with this. Through life modeling, seeing how other people were drawing me, made me aware of how they saw me; my body form, my structure. Then I started to be in control of, and play with my sexuality more.
One day an artist, Chris Francis, drew my bottom, and he called it ‘Le Derrier Noir’, and seeing that made me love my bum.
I think that life modeling has its place in healing as well as in creating art.”
