On 1st November, we disrupted the streets of Soho with an energetic, colourful and really fun procession to celebrate Dia de Muertos, as a publicity stunt for Patron tequila. We finished in Greek Street, where people could view the work of four different Mexican artists whilst enjoying Patron tequila based cocktails.

I played La Catrina on peg stilts, with Diego Martinez as my husband on stilts, La Catrin.

I had such a fun time performing two Great Gatsby themed acts on La Luna at Banqueting House last Friday. The first was a slinky performance to Everybody Wants To Be A Cat, in a fringed black 1920s costume. The second was a lighthearted act to Liquid Lunch, with my character being a little tipsy and hungover, in a white and gold 1920s costume.

The acts were on The Dream Performance's La Luna, for Sternberg Clarke events.

I was approached by Lock Studios to shoot an editorial for Die Dame magazine with Jo Metson Scott, and met a wonderful team of talented creatives and strong female models...including the world's oldest supermodel, Daphne Selfe! At the age of 91, Daphne casually showed me a Y-stand with no warm up.

I was really excited to work with Jo as her film photography is gorgeous. I was equally excited to work with Lock Studios as I had already been admiring their work on Instagram.

I travelled to Glasgow with World of Coco for the launch of the 2020 theme for Visit Scotland - Year of Coasts and Waters.

As well as modelling as mermaids on stilts for promotional images for Visit Scotland, we attended the Visit Scotland Expo at the SEC.

I am currently touring shopping centres around the UK with Bearded Kitten, presenting an interactive promotions experience with a Fashion Circus theme, to promote a new app which allows shoppers to take a photo of a garment they like, and find similar items in their shopping centre of choice. The hashtag for the event is #ashoppingaffair, and I have been having a great time playing Silvia Strut, a catwalk model on stilts.

I was absolutely honoured to work with the incredible talents of Vicki King and Celia Burton in 2018, to create images based on the colour purple for Issue 1 of Primary Paper Magazine.

Shooting on film and experimenting with bubbles, glitter, textures and light, Vicki King captured a series of portraits and acrobatic shots for submission to the magazine.

We shot at her home and a nearby park with Celia Burton makeup, then at Aircraft Circus' Creation Studio.

Here are some links to the magazine, Vicki and Celia...

A circus dream came true - 31 aerial friends and myself opened the Brit Awards at the O2 with the man who definitely earned the title, "The Greatest Showman" - Hugh Jackman. I was one of the eight silks artists, with my sister, Maddy, on one of the giant chandeliers rigged by High Performance Productions. Circus consultancy was done by Roger Robinson of Acrobat Productions.

To perform in the O2, rigged above Hugh Jackman, dancers, fire artists and trickers was an incredible and special experience. The show was screened live on ITV and YouTube. Atlantic Records posted a high quality video of the act...

My makeup was done by Austri Vivas, with a Twiggy style look.

This summer, Rosie, Maddy and I went to Almeria and the Cabo de Gata to shoot in the incredible scenery of Andalucia. Beaches, gold mine ruins, desert and cacti.
