Photographer: Athena “Trixy” J. Wollaston (DM Expressions)
How did you start modeling?
I started modeling when I was a teenager for fun, teaming up with local photographers and makeup artists. I wanted to come out of my shell, show the world who I am and what I am capable of, getting to this point is definitely an honor!
Tell us, what are you into besides modeling?
I am a full-time tattoo artist; I have been tattooing for 9 years now and have my own private studio located in Peterborough, Ontario. Art has always been a huge part of my life, a way to express and cope with day to day life. Now I get to help others express and decorate their own canvas, it’s a beautiful thing!
Who is your favorite artist?
There are too many to choose from! I have always admired the Baroque to the Art Nouveau periods, but when it comes to the tattoo world Jenna Kerr, Carlos Torres and Laura Anunnaki (just to name a few) inspire me and get lurked the most hahaha!
Did you grow up with a large family?
My family is very large and very diverse! I was adopted as a young teen and was welcomed into a huge loving Italian family, as well as being close to my biological side, and not to mention the in-laws! Let’s just say holidays are hectic, but I am so fortunate and wouldn’t be the woman I am today without my big, crazy family!
What’s your most favorite city to visit?
Toronto! Typical Canadian answer but it’s such an experience! There is so much to do and see it’s never a dull moment.
Where would you like to travel to before you die?
I would love to travel to Ireland, and well, all of Europe! My family background is Irish/English and being born on St. Patrick’s Day I feel like it would be a great experience if I can remember it. lol
Do you like pets? Do you own any?
I’m a huge cat lady, I have 3 fur babies and they are my world, life just isn’t complete without some cat hair in it!
