How did you become interested in Burlesque?
I grew up in a very eccentric artist family. My father is a painter and my mother is an actress and a tarot reader. Outside my home I felt very out of place most of my youth. When I went to a burlesque show to see a friend perform, I was enchanted. I loved the variety of people performing and how all the performers seemed to embrace what made them different. Since then I fell madly and deeply in love with burlesque.
Where you have performed ?
I started modelling when I was 18 and eventually I got into go go dancing in various nightclubs. I got into burlesque later on and have been lucky enough to perform internationally since then alongside extremely talented and amazing performers.
Which performers are your inspiration?
I feel inspired every time I watch someone perform burlesque. The creativity doesn’t cease to amaze me! For my own shows I get inspiration from beautiful glamour ghouls like Morticia Addams, Vampira,Elvira and I love the playfulness of Betty Page and of course glitter.
Do you have any Shows coming up Zelda where you are performing Gory & Glam ?
