Modeling Opportunities ~ Spring & Summer 2017 ~ Colorado
Thank you everyone for your interest in my art projects! THESE MODELING DATES HAVE BEEN BOOKED. Check back later to see about more dates later in the year.
Staying creative in my art form is so important, and over the years (2003+) I love what each one of these projects brings out in me.
Blessed Belly, Blessed Baby: Honoring Motherhood with Henna Tattoos
This is an ongoing art project I've been working on officially since 2008. Adorning women with henna during pregnancy & postpartum is a tradition from Africa and I love to recreate that with women. For this art project I am looking for women due in May, June and July. I ask that women be a blank canvas - in terms of not having visible tattoos to work around. (I do make exceptions for women who are also willing to pose nude or have multiples). Applicants must be okay with being photographed for final art as well as "behind the scenes" and potentially included in a video. So far I've published 6 books (flip through Volume 4: http://www.blurb.com/books/5228308-blessed-belly-blessed-baby-vol-4) and I'm working on the next version of this art and I'm very excited to publish a new book soon. The art created from this project may also be used in my other huge creative endeavor: I am the Creative Director Artfull Mother Magazine! (www.artfullmother.com)
All models receive the henna design of their choice and 4 watermarked images from our sessions together. I ask that all models sign a model release and contribute $30 towards materials.

This magazine is devoted to the interests of mothers and the art that empowers them! Anyone can enjoy the magazine, though I've designed it to be a LOCAL resource so the new mamas coming into this community can find them. If you are a local mother, I would love you to participate with this project. I am seeking true stories / expressions of motherhood. Do you create art of any kind? Write poetry? Have you written your birth story or another unique story about being a mama? One Lafayette mama submitted a story about when she asked her daughter if she remembered being in her belly and she said YES.
