This book is the only nude modeling I have ever done. I actually did not realize when I responded to their model call that it was for nude modeling. I learned that information just before meeting with Maureen and Doug for the first time. I considered canceling that preliminary meeting, but decided it would be a fun thing to try. Besides working with Maureen and Doug, my favorite part was coming up with unique and interesting poses while on the rotating platform. It was such a creative experience and was definitely worth the next day’s muscle strain.

To turn each of these vocations into separate and thriving careers is definitely an overall goal that I continue making strides toward daily. I have an Associates degree in Visual Arts from Northern Essex Community College. This schooling acquainted me with many new artistic ideas and affirmed that my goals are to communicate with others vocally or through visual art.
