How did you start modeling?
I’m actually not a model. I have taken some photo sets and I’ve tried to do my part, but I’m no model. I’m an artist.
Tell us your story. What makes your story special?
I think being sick makes me stand out. Having cancer, being a hospice patient and mother to three little beings is hard. Knowing that I have to beat cancer to see who my daughter ends up marrying or what my other daughter or son become as adults is a hard concept.
Who is your favorite artist?
I would have to say I really love to watch Dillon Forte work. We owned a shop together almost ten years ago now, and it was one of the best times in my life. Living in San Francisco, working with him, made me the artist I am now.
Did you grow up with a large family?
No. sadly no. I grew up very very poor and very very displaced. My childhood taught me survival. A hundred percent.
What do you do in your free time?
Oh man I bake! I love love love to cook and bake so I bake things!!
What did you last Bake?
I made cinnamon roll apple pie.
