ACTRESS - Crippled butterfly. Vintage vixen. The elegant villainess. A silk handkerchief with crimson lipstick on it. Incredibly compelling. Enigmatic. Strong. Fragile. True. Torn.
These are some of the ways I've been described.
As a theater and film actress with a love for diving deeply into my characters and bringing different historical periods to life for audiences, I enjoy researching my roles as much as performing them. Although I'm forever being told that I stepped out of a bygone era and am frequently cast in period pieces, my versatility enables me to embody a wide variety of characters, time periods, and genres.
My current passion is portraying 1920s silent screen vamp, Barbara La Marr, in a one-woman show I wrote about her incredible life. For upcoming show times, click the Barbara La Marr tab above.
For a listing of my acting credits and training, please refer to my acting resume.
WRITER - I am currently writing the biography of Barbara La Marr, at the request of her son, Donald Gallery. I have also written a film about her life. For more information, see the Barbara La Marr page.
MODEL - There's Barbie and there's Barbie Noir---guess which I am.
I am most passionate about the glamour and style epitomized by Hollywood's Golden Age. A few of my modeling highlights include: Lili Forrest / reVamp Vintage Recreations / Jabali / Luxe / J. Jansen Couture Jewelry / Dark Garden Corsetry / "30 Years of Pin-up: 1927-1957" Fashion Show at Bullock's Wilshire / Enigma / Edith Head Fashion Show at Los Angeles Theatre / Adored / "30 Years of Pin-up" Fashion Show at the Warner Grand Theatre (My final gown was one worn by Bette Davis in "All About Eve.").

ME - Equally at home atop a pair of heels as I am barefoot on the beach, I'm fiercely loyal, love to sing, and adore all forms of dance. I get up before the sun every day to dive into whatever projects I have going. It has been said of me that my presence, words, and artistry nurture and inspire others. I strive to express the most magnificent version of myself and to support others in doing the same.
*** I am represented theatrically, commercially, and for print by BMG Talent Los Angeles (323-692-0900)
