I am an Artist, Model and UFC Octagon Girl.
Happy, forgiving and independent.
Being true to yourself.
I was in a car accident when I was 21, I wasn't able to dance professionally anymore so I decided to pick up the paint /push. I fell in love with it so much that I moved to Los Angeles to go to art school.
I think some consider my art as pop art and others spontaneous realism. I just know what I love to paint and that's all that matters to me.
I usually get inspired by music and pop culture but for 'No Agency' (current show) I was inspired by my recent trip to Bali.
It's important to always stay true to yourself.
I loved the idea of doing a show on my own and going against the grain. I can be pretty relentless.
I look up to so many people. Artists, poets, musicians, my mother.
Art means expression to do or create anything you want. No rules.
I recently did a collaboration with Reebok and Ufc for international fight week in Las Vegas. It was amazing to see all of the fighters wearing my designs.
My /pother is extremely talented at drawing and my mother has always had an artistic sensibility
No agency is an Artist for Artist Show and Shop. Alongside some of my new works we are also featuring four amazing artists Lee Taylor Jones, Dan Alva, Tanya Ragir , and Tonia Colderon. Each artist will also have their art showcased on clothing that we are launching during Art Basel.
I genuinely think that it just takes confidence and someone with no other motive other than just saying hello. It takes the pressure off.
Arrogance and bad manners. My mother has always taught me to treat people like I would want to be treated. I think that's important.
I think it's fun to be able to go to different locations meet so many people and work with them also to be able to look back on this time in my life and have memories to show my kids.
But, being bikini ready all year round sometimes it's a little difficult.
I started working with UFC when I was 20 years old, I went to an audition and got the part. I've been with them ever since! We are like one big family.
That's one of my favorite parts about being with UFC, travel the world experience all these amazing places and meet so many great people!
100% I have been a fan since before I started working.
I'm an avid spinner, yogi and interval trainer!
Kate Moss, Gigi Hadid, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen
Vitamin face mist. It's a must!
Headphones, moleskin notebook,
I like all types of music, but I really have a connection with rock from 60s 70s, alternative from the 90s, and I can jam out to electronic like Odesza .
I have supported Smile Train, AMFAR, Etta.
Early morning wake up, coffee, gym, farmers market, paint.
I think social media has changed the wave of the future. It's amazing that people not have a voice and the ability to communicate so easily.
that's impossible to choose just one….
