Chiara has been doing this a long time, as such she is a very experienced model, passionate and an amazingly creative spirit. She is also eccentric, accommodating, musical, bohemian, creative, messy, inquisitive and warm. She generally thinks outside the cylinder without having to think at all.
I don’t do or feel anything in slight doses – it’s ALL or nothing. She is very much a full-time model, but also plays classical piano at dinners, concerts, weddings, other events, and I take commissions for art – usually acrylic on canvas, but will happily discuss use of other mediums. One of my favoured mottos in life is directly related to the fact you spend most of your life either working or sleeping, so your work must be something in which you take great pleasure, else you simply won’t feel like it’s worth the journey.
