I first saw an image many years ago in traditional Japanese erotic art-of a woman bound in ropes. That inspiration eventually lead me down a path of discovery in events and classes. Immediately I discovered the magical connection between the people I tied with that occurred in this thing called Shibari. After practicing for many years I wanted to share my passion with different people and communities I am involved in. I did just that. I really wanted to share and dispel some of the rumors and stereotypes of what Shibari was. That first experience was so well received that it led me to do other performances both in and out of those communities-and to where I am today. I am really excited to share this beautiful thing called Shibari for you, and to introduce you to my gorgeous rope partner and fellow performer.

The most interesting thing about artwork is that the same imagery can have the power to stimulate someone to have an orgasm while others may feel disturbed. This is particularly true for erotic art since this form of expression is rather subjective and based on perceptions of what is erotic and what is even art. A paint brush or camera in the hand of anyone is a powerful tool to resolve the awesome diversity of the human reaction. I have been generating photographic and other artworks for over 20 years, first starting with electron and light microscopic images that were turned into art and then film and digital platforms that were used to generate traditional collage. Published works include images in scientific journals and the cover of Journal of Neuroscience, a pictorial work on San Francisco "places to go" as a review of the Bay Area for 'August Man Magazine', Singapore. Other works have been shown in galleries in Glasgow, Prague, the UK and most recently in Seattles erotic arts festival in both photograph and collage work. Erotic and sexy in a surreal manner is my focus.

Marquisa De Sade
I am inspired by the magical beauty of the orchards, farmland and the Sutter Buttes. I grew up in a rural area, and I have fond memories of playing on tire swings, hiding in the oak grove, and playing in the barn. My mom is very inspiring to me, she was always taking tole painting classes and I would tag along…this is where my love of painting developed. Much of my artwork has a free spirited, lively and colorful feel to it. My work is also transformative, as the past several years I have overcome obstacles which have proved to yield a beautiful return of self growth and inner exploration. Thus, you may observe many butterflies and flowers in my work which is a portrayal of growth, blossoming and positive change. I utilize primarily bright hues of acrylic paint currently, but also work in mixed media, including paste, molding, liquid medium and charcoal. I love to experiment and utilize different techniques, such as drips, and broad brush strokes.

Melissa has been in the "scene" since 2014 both publicly and privately. Since then she has been growing as a submissive, learning her boundaries and finding her confidence. In doing so, she participated in some boudoir shoots of her own and promptly fell in love with the process. She began professionally taking photos in 2018. Starting with simple shots, such as landscapes, animals and photos of friends. As she grew in her profession, she discovered a love for boudoir and erotic photography. She finds the time she spends behind the camera and with the client extremely rewarding, as she has been able to help clients find their self-confidence, self-love, erotic and kinky selves, romance and inner god/goddess once more.

EAE Official Photographer
The Outlaw hails from Florida. I studied art in The Ozarks, with my focus on art history and painting. I began taking pictures in 2005 when a friend's band needed pictures for an album cover. I was heavily involved in my local music scene and when I wasn't picking my banjo, I was taking pictures! I then got interested in pin up art and started building my own sets, doing makeup, hair, providing wardrobe, and shooting classic cheesecake pin up, as well as girls and cars!

Spoken Word / Author
Who am I? Yes, I am the author of a book, a speaker, a submissive and yet there is so much more to me. The pieces that came together to deliver this work to you are broken and beautiful, damaged and whole, soft and firm, wild and holy. I am you. I am all the parts of you that you know about and those, especially those, that you don’t. I am here to tell you that it’s okay to go into the unknown, I went kicking and screaming, crying and scared… I’m talking about the pain that keeps you doubting your worth and living from lies. I now face life with clarity and intuition, with openness and curiosity, from love and strength. This is a continuous process, we are never finished, but we are always, always a work of art exactly how we are right now. I embrace me fully and completely; I invite you to do the same. Once you get here, you will live your life on your own terms; and those terms are exquisitely yours. Come, take this journey with me, trust me, you won’t regret it.
Visual Artist / Performing Artist
I have been producing art for most of my life, experimenting with different media, and amassing a large wheelhouse of skillsets including sculpture, abstract “fire” drawings using a process that I “invented” during my undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley, photography, written word, performance, jewelry, and casting. While I tend to gravitate towards organic and abstract shapes or forms, I am equally comfortable with more geometric or architectural designs. Life is a journey of growth, self discovery, and introspection and art allows me to express myself and my interests as well as process and make sense of the world around me.
I am interested in the perspectives and perceptions that people hold which often leads me to dissect the “what's” and “why's” of everything around me. I often interject bits of humor in more seriously themed pieces as a mechanism to make the subject matter more relatable to those who might otherwise just glaze over the content of the piece.
Our world is complicated and messy. Art helps me sort out the complicated and messy things inside of myself so I can grow and heal in a healthy manner while encouraging the same in my viewers, friends, and loved ones.
