A cyber-fetish model and photo model founded in Athens, Greece. Her modeling experience started when she realized that she is very into fetish and cyber subcultures. Her love for latex, vinyl, PVC, metal wear and all those wonderful materials which are considered as "extreme" attracted her from her childhood. Nowadays, she is very deeply in this alternative modeling scene and dares to say that she paved the way for other girls, in such a restricted country as Greece, to 'Dare to Wear' and become whatever they like. You see, a woman can be everything nowadays, a true chameleon, a source of innoscence and perversion at the same time.
Born in a family deeply into music as her father was one of the first music journalists and record critics in Greece she was traveling in Europe first accompanied by her father and later alone. Her mother was a make-up artist, a person who devoted her job to beauty. Obviously she was not as the other kids of her age. She used to attend the most extreme experimental, alternative and underground concerts in her country from a very young age, bought anything unusual, special and freaky for her making of, reading anything related to underground music, metaphysical phenomena the supernatural and weird lifestyles. Bored of her classmates and all people of the same age as her she was trying to improve herself by practicing her hobbies. Sketching, drawing, sculpting, writing stories or concert reviews, singing and dancing were the most characteristic of hers. She was a remarkable student, finished her senior high school with high grades, learnt french, english and italian and then received her Bachelor and Master degree in graphic design. She attended vocals' lessons at the Athenaeum at the age of seven, sang for some bands later and left vocals for other important activities. Nowadays she learns german. Her mini-sculpture and ready-mades themes are based on her imagination and sometimes are influenced by books and mythology.
Still though, she was always bored of her city's grey landscape, the ordinary people there who were obviously lacking of imagination and liked to travel abroad. As for dressing up, she couldn't ever understand how all girls in her country could be so similar to each other every day. She was searching for something different, always went for the best and not for the second best. So, imagine that anything like a strange pattern on clothing stuff became an obsession for her. Started wearing shiny vinyl, PVC, leather, tulle, feathers and faux furs at the age of sixteen (very extreme for Greece and Athens as well) and visiting all the most important dark alternative clubs, she continued by searching the weirdest stuff. Later she was not afraid of doing anything that popped up in her mind.
Apart from drawing and sculpting as main hobbies she developed her make-up and hairstyling skills from her early school years. Extreme make-up arts, body painting, spray painting, cyberlocks, cyber-industrial accessories, latex, dreadlocks, synthetic hair, transformer-boots, Cyberdog, Pleaser, Demonia, goggles, piercings, faux-furs, flashy colors, UV-reactive spikes, mirror chokers, reflectors, flashy-glitter, any kind of corsets, handmade leather creations and metal wear became for her daily dictionary and created her own lifestyle. She was attracted by anything androgynous, delighted by anime, hentai, androids fashion, the cyborgization of the human body and human society itself.
Everything started when she was suggested to do some parts modeling for a British webpage (www.lngnails.com), nine years ago (in the year 2000) and only by paid assignments. Later she could not be so active due to her strict studies on graphic design. She continued much later building her portfolio. She got more active into modeling the last five years. Her graphic design studies, her love for art and music and her passion for creation inspired her more and she loved to add ideas in photo shootings and stylizations. Today it is a fact that she can do her styling on her own but, of course, she is open to suggestions of other experienced professionals. Besides she is a chameleon and loves to give presence to any interesting project and photo-shooting.
