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.
Interests: Psychology, health & wellness, dogs, yoga, fine dining, reading, motorcycling.

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.

Just letting everyone know that I'm officially semi-retired from modeling at this point. That means that I'm not actively networking or trying to book work with new photographers. I'll still occasionally shoot with people I've worked with in the past who have produced amazing images, but I won't be booking any new shoots unless the offer is *extremely* lucrative. Not interested in any trade work at this point. Modeling has been an amazing experience, but it's time for me to move on to other things that will hopefully be equally as amazing.  

Thanks to all the talented photographers and artists who have been kind enough to include me in their vision, befriend me, and/or support me. You all mean the world to me, and I hope we can stay in touch! 

Huge thanks to all the people who follow me here, and to everyone who's been kind enough to leave comments, write critiques, and send me encouraging messages. You all kept me modeling for longer than I would have without you, and many of your words inspired me to new heights. I really can't thank all of you enough. 

I'll still be around, but I won't be checking this site or posting nearly as often. If you send me a message here, and I don't respond, please try to get in touch with me on Model Mayhem:, Tumblr: or Facebook:… . I still welcome messages, and will answer questions/return comments as I have time.

Thanks again everyone, and best of luck with your artistic endeavors!   :-)

~Melissa Ann
