Nadeshiko is a recent and shiny import to the city of Portland. Originally from Virginia, she has been a freelance model for 5 and a half years, and a visual artist her whole life. Her name stems from the concept of the ideal beauty of a woman, something she enjoys subverting in her personal artwork and is also the name of a rare wildflower. Her hope is to complete a Master's program involving social work and to use art therapy to bridge the gap between what a person feels and what they're able to communicate.
When she isn't running around abandoned buildings, posing in nature, or in the studio, she can be found exploring new parts of town, eating delicious food while people-watching, going on adventures with friends, or just sitting at home watching a movie or reading a book.
