A Poem...

She walks into the frame like she owns the place
and proceeds to take possession of her audience
she is no child, but youth still clings to her
it does not want to let go
it embraces her like a lover
she is a woman, and she is

comfortable in her skin
confident in her gaze
secure in her knowledge

and she awakens things in you
doesn't she

Poem by: Rich Diltz (bodypainter & poet)

Nobody has ever written me a poem before, I am so touched.

Thanks Rich!

I'm a nude model who is passionate about creating art. I'm interested in creating images that show depth, subtlety, emotion, sensuality and simple beauty. I enjoy collaborating with photographers, models and other artists, so please don't hesitate to contact me.

***PLEASE NOTE: I do not shoot erotic glamour, couples, spreads, porn, etc.
Thank you in advance for not contacting me with these offers.***

STATS: Height: 5'6" | Weight: 110 pounds | Measurements: 33-24-36.

Ask me a question, I'll give you an answer. :)

***ATTENTION ARTISTS: Please feel free to use any of the images from my gallery as reference for drawing/painting/digital painting. I really appreciate your art, so please let me know when you finish a piece so I can have a look at it!

I'M SORRY, BUT ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTO-MANIPULATIONS/ ALTERATIONS ARE ALLOWED. I do not hold the copyright to my images, and none of the photographers I've worked with allow others to re-edit or manipulate their work. IMAGE THEFT/ ALTERATIONS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED, and will be immediately reported to the photographer/copyright holder and DA site admins.

Please also note that I do not send nude snapshots to anyone, for any reason, ever.

I seriously love you guys. This includes some of the digital painters too.

Every time I get a message from one of you with a link to a piece you've created that was inspired by one of my images, it really makes my day/week/month. I go back and look at your artwork, and feel so honored that you guys took the time to make something truly unique, and share it with me. I hope to post most of your artwork on my Tumblr at some point, I just have to space it out between regular photos so I don't run out of your lovely work too soon. 

I'm so grateful to all of you, I can't thank you enough.

I've never had personal prints made of my images, but please let me know if any of you are interested in signed prints (limited to artists who have made works inspired by my gallery images, this includes poetry). I'm going to try and get some prints made soon so I have something to give you all as a token of my appreciation for your hard work and talent.

Special thanks to a few of the recent artists who have made multiple works based on my images, and have also been very supportive of my work:

Please go and check out their galleries!

***Edit:  If anyone else chooses to use any of my photos for their art, I would love it if you DID NOT use any of these 3 images since 95% of all the works I've seen have been based on these:

And thanks for liking my work enough to keep watching :gallery:
I'm glad someone does...
After all what is art without spectators?

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

Thanks for your :+fav: on 'Strung III', Melissa

You know, sometimes I feel well and vital in the world, and sometimes I just feel so distressed I want to pull my hair out by the roots.
