PERFORMANCE ARTIST STATEMENT - ' It is my intrinsic desire to create art via presentation of self,to evoke a feeling from my audience,be that shock,joy or disgust.'






I have performed well over a hundred shows,from 2004 to the present, across the U.K as well as internationally.

My performance at a tattoo convention in India made the papers there - i was banned from performing any further shows due to the risque nature of my act!

My Skills Include-

A variety of neo burlesque routines from drag strip tease to darkly comic paint splattered riots of nudity!
  
Fire eating,fakir,fire hoop,fire palms,fire fans.

Angle grinding-watch those sparks fly!

A variety of sideshow skills such as walking on  broken glass,stilt walking,illusionary sword swallowing .

Experienced go-go dancer,also advanced level pole dancer and  trapeze artist.

I am also available for living statue art installations-i often collaborate with body painters to create unique, stand out features for clubs and events.

Alongised my solo work,i often collaborate with other artists such as Alex Tsander,the Engish Hypnotist-
