Full-time model - paid commercial work
Reinvention after retirement from social work led to my becoming a life and photographic model in August 2011. When the reinvention process was almost complete ( through the process of weight loss) I needed to consider what I really wanted from life and the answer came from my son, Guy, who had suggested amongst other occupations, life modelling. Since then I have found a new and exciting career which has also brought me to the stage, having a small but integral part touring in Terry Johnson’s play ‘Hysteria’ during 2012. This part is due to reprised at the Hampstead Theatre from Sept 5-Oct 12th 2013 where I also had the part of 'Anna'
I was surprised at the positive response I had when first advertising myself as a life model and it still never ceases to surprise me when approached by people who would like to work with me. My photographer husband, David (DavidAnthonyImagery) has also found an additional use for me now that I am more comfortable in front of a camera.
