Always Bet on Red

When it comes to redheads… they grab attention. A colour like red is not a wallflower background colour and instead shouts out from the page or canvas laid upon. Red even jumps out of photographs and signs… like in this webtorial.

The colour red represents physical energy, lust, passion, and desire. Packed with emotion ranging from intense love to anger and violence — representing both cupid and the devil. It is a hot, strong, stimulating colour that represents excitement and energy.

Red is the colour of passion.

Passion is the opposite of neutrality.

Think about what happens when you take a passionate colour like red… and add some skin.

Q: What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your Instagram?

A: I can feel exceptionally shy and awkward doing everyday things like phoning to make an appointment, ordering food or returning an item to a store. This really surprises people as I tend to come across as a bubbly, noisy, extrovert, even online.

Q: Do you think nude art photography can be both artistic and also erotic? How do you draw the definition?

A: I think the human body is a little like a Magic Eye image. It is layered with meaning and can transform as your perspective changes. Our bodies can be seen as purely functional, a simple contrasting shape on a horizon. They can speak to our… experience and impact on the environment. They can be sensual, or emotive, or sexual.

I think the category an image falls into depends on social cues, context and intention — both of those creating the image and those viewing it. The weight of art or erotica can be carried in a pose, an expression, an angle, what is shown and what is hidden from view.

Both are beautiful. Both have their place.

Q: When you’re not busy modeling, what are some of your favorite things to do?

A: I’m quite a spontaneous person and I love trying new things — though I am not always so great at following through on my bright ideas or good intentions! In an ideal world, I’d be travelling with my favourite people, but I’m far more likely to be found sampling a new Australian gin, dancing around my kitchen in very fancy underwear, having a leisurely breakfast (and dessert) with friends, patting an alpaca, listening to a true crime podcast, binge watching a new tv series or making my way to the front of the mosh pit. Or sadly, scrolling through my phone. Instagram steals a lot of my time!

Q: You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

A: Emerald green. There is just something about that colour that has always drawn me in — even before I was a redhead. It is deep and bold, with just a little bit of old school glamour.

Q: What’s your favorite snack?

A: It’s a tie breaker between fresh warm doughnuts and hot chips. Resistance is futile on either of those fronts. I would happily eat both every day and preferably one after another. I can’t go past that salty sweet combo!

Q: What is your all time favorite movie and why?

A: A tough call, but I would have to say Fight Club. I’m a big Fincher fan, but I particularly like the nameless main character, the use of narration, the visual layering, the way that you notice something different every time you see it and its refusal to give you a simple answer tied up in a bow. Palahniuk, Pitt, Norton and Bonham-Carter is a recipe for gold, honestly.

Q: Come the weekend, what’s your favourite thing to do?

A: Wake up to a day with no alarm, no plan and no expectations
