THING 1 – This past weekend we celebrated the 11th year of ABSfest here in Asheville and I had the pleasure of participating in a brief interview with the local NPR station to talk empowerment through burlesque with some fellow ABSfesters and festival producer, Onca O’Leary. Find the link HERE. Many thanks to Onca for inviting me along and kudos for another great festival.
THING 2 – GGR’s Burlesque Battle is June 10th. This month’s theme is Weird Al vs The Originals. It’s a hoot and we’d be delighted to see you in the audience.

The latest shots from the Pinup Project series are here. You can see I’m still on the blond hair ship and my natural curls are finally making an appearance after several years in hiding. Someone likened one of these to Madonna in her Vogue phase. I was more channeling Marilyn, but okay. Madonna’s good, too.
Anyway, have a look and I hope you enjoy…
My genius photographer friend Shaun (SIC Images) and I collaborated on a project using my 6ft balloon and our mutual love for black and white photography. I think the results are absolutely awesome. I hope you do, too… 🙂
Many thanks to our fab assistant Plucky for the behind the scenes shots!
