MUSE Awards 2022
One of my main reasons for starting these body castings was to help women (whether they are the models posing for the work, or a woman admiring the finished pieces) embrace and love their own bodies.
This past weekend, I was invited to do my first LIVE model casting during the St. Pete Arts Alliance MUSE Awards. This experience was new, nerve-racking, and exciting all at the same time.
During the event, my model posed in three different positions. The castings took about 30-45 minutes each, and in between, we had 30 minute breaks to allow her to stretch and relax. The castings seemed to be a hit for the partiers as it was something different than normal to experience.
I was very surprised when I was asked to participate in this event. To be able to create in such a supportive environment full of Art-loving individuals was an incredible honor. I was nervous at first that my live demonstration would be too controversial or that others would not respect what I was doing, but everyone seemed intrigued and asked about the work. I hope to be apart of many more in the future.
