About Me

• Fine Art/ Figure Model •

I am freelance art model, a professional artist's muse with BAMA and a visual artist from the SF Bay Area. I am comfortable nude, able to travel and I genuinely enjoy meeting new people and helping other creatives of all kinds form their visions to the best of my abilities.

In a Nutshell
• Gladly poses for life drawing/painting, casting, sculpture & body painting projects
• My modeling interests are varied, but I always love fine art nudes
• I have a car & work around the greater SF Bay Area often
• Happy to work with any skill level
• I have one tattoo & pierced earlobes
• I normally do natural-looking makeup but am happy to work with MUA's if desired
• Comfortable modeling with other models
• I have reasonable rates
• Stats are always current

"It's been wonderful working with Mauvais, both in the studio and at my favorite outdoor locations. She can quickly and effortlessly glide though a range of poses, or hold a pose and make subtle changes until the image comes together. Mauvais has been the co-creator of many of my favorite photos. If you have the chance to work with her, definitely schedule a session. And besides, how often do you get to work with a model who has studied art in Italy?" Read less

"Mauvais is really an under-appreciated gem of a model for the SF Bay area. Her figure is just simply divine and every time I've worked with her (6 times so far) I've just been blown away by how artful and beautiful her posing is. She communicates well, is dedicated to her art, and I've really enjoyed our shoots. I feel very fortunate to have her in the area as I know she will definitely bring it, be it studio, outdoors, or an airbnb location. Highly recommended!" Read less
