My name is Morimda and I came up with the idea of Spirited Bodies because I realised when I was telling people about what I do as a life model, they thought it was amazing – their faces (especially women) would light up. One friend told me I could use what I do to empower other women, as so many women (and men) have a negative body image.
I want to show you what I look like normally, made up, and in paint. I have many looks like all women, all people; and as an artist’s model I get to see myself in a wide variety of looks.
I have been modeling for a long time and when I began I was very shy. I would hardly speak, but I have always had a strong physical nature. Through modeling, which is normally a quiet activity, I have acquired a voice.
