I’m the alien, the singer, the queen…the strangest thing you’ve ever seen!I went to art school in Brazil. I studied painting and I used to do what I (pretentiously) called photo-performance to draw attention to my ACTUAL artwork on canvas – until I started noticing people taking more interest in the paint I put on MY FACE, rather than on the canvas (I still don’t understand why I got so much attention for it to be honest).I’m inspired by so many things and people, but some of my major influences include: Anna-Varney Cantodea, Peter Steele, Klaus Nomi, Maila Nurmi, RuPaul, Nergal, etc.I have been singing in heavy metal bands since my teenage years (so many moons ago), but I had never combined drag and singing until about 3 years ago. I performed a tribute for the band Ghost B.C. and I was fairly successful, probably. A little after that, I dropped out of art school and decided to pursue the American dream, said goodbye to my family and friends (and a female girlfriend, believe it or not), and jumped on a plane and never looked back (only maybe a few times… okay, more than a few times… okay it’s every day. It’s every day guys!).So far in my American journey I have found a lovely fiancee, some clients (I’m a photographer – HIRE ME!), a handful of friends, and an AMAZING band called “V”- in which I sing in full female alien-witch mode with 3 other weirdos in costumes. We do WICKED HEAVY heavy heavy metal magick. Our first music video called Escape (below) is about to come out! Follow me on social media for more info on that, more “beauty” and weirdness, probably a few pictures of cats, and dead gothy stuff.
