Modeling is my passion. I love traveling and co-creating wonderful fashion/art work with talented people and being a part of their vision. Currently I’m based in London but travel a lot to USA where my children go to school.
Along modeling I have a calling to uplift and bring the best out of people; teaching Reiki, yoga, giving bodywork treatments and organizing fun events (like morning sober dance parties with yoga, massages and organic breakfasts).
I love playing with images and words (my second ‘M’ passion is marketing); tuning into multilayered dimensions of meaning. I love striking contrasts and as a model I am ALLways ready to ‘walk an extra mile’ to bring extra out of ordinary.
I’m super easy going, adventurous, fun, fit (love cracking jokes, running, swimming, dancing and moving). I’m also capable of holding poses for long periods of times (a coolio side effect of meditating for donkey’s years 😉)
I’ve got strong features and quite muscular physic and I’m happy to work in all sorts of conditions as long as we are having fun and injecting humor while co-creating outstanding results 👍👌
I also have two super coolio, photogenic kids Polo (11) & Ria (7) who love posing. They both took part in AmericInn hotels marketing campaign. Just imagine how surprised they were seeing their smiley faces on billboards while traveling across United States with their dad.
My recent work includes:
•cat walk for London’s Country Living Fair
•modelling for Maharishi Ayurveda Clinique (receiving spa body treatments)
•fashion organic wear for US based company Blue Fish Clothing etc
•Wendydog USA - alternative hand painted clothing
I’m seriously excited to work with you on any project that makes you heart sing
Our readers would love to get to know you more PatryCZA. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I have reached the point in my life where I know how to bring the best out of myself and people I work with. The more I discover my unique layers the more I see it in other people which is a truly creative and magical blend. I have a great tool kit of skills (Reiki Master, energy therapist, yoga teacher and...have a master degree in political science..lol) which certainly helps in a co-creative work :) I am 37 years young mum of two, citizen of the world and an uplifter who's attention to beauty, love of colors and extra ordinary visions attracts unusual and delightful opportunities.
PatryCZA, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion is LIVING LIFE TO THE FULL; allowing natural expansion of interests and skills and co-creating my reality consciously. I love getting involved in all sort of artistic/fashion/music/movement workshops and projects and I am opened to play any required role. Bringing high quality experiences to everyone who works with me is my main objective!
Who is your inspiration in life PatryCZA? How do you keep inspired?
I have many gurus depends on the field. In fashion world I love it ALL from designers like Gucci, Versace, Armani or Vivienne Westwood to futuristic folks like Markus Schmidbauer. I also model myself on super models like Naomi Campbell (I was often told we have similar legs :) or Kate Moss who's big, wide spread eyes remind me of my daughter Ria. In personal development world I aspire to a high level of proficiency, sharing enlightened vision for humanity and very high quality of living available for everyone and shared by Vishen Lakshiani (the founder of Mindvalley Academy). In healing world I love to be a continuum of work of such extraordinary minds like: Gary Craig (founder of powerful healing practice EFT), Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui (a pioneer of my Reiki lineage) who has brought powerful Reiki practise to the west. The list goes on and on....
We all make mistakes PatryCZA, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model , you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I am very easy going and don't seem to experience situations in my work I would regret. I am aware that when we are tired or overwhelmed things can get more challenging. I have a nature of bringing the best out of people by focusing on their strengths and highlighting the aspects that work which makes life much more enjoyable in every situation, attracting fast solutions. We all make mistakes or do we? I see it as a part of a creative process: you've got to experience the contrast in order to gain clarity about what you really want. There is always a way and there is always another train. When you put love into everything you do there are no regrets...just experiences. Bring it on! :)
PatryCZA ,when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I find that when you know how to cultivate high vibes (meditating, exercising, eating well etc) you get greater clarity; maintaining clear communication and prioritizing becomes a natural response; things easily fall into place and everyone can get what they want. I know how to achieve that :)
Please tell us PatryCZA, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I once worked for a lady an American designer who asked me to model for her new collection but happened to be overwhelmed by the number of things (her exhibition was the following weekend and she only had two days left). She had to many tasks too deal with personally and found it challenging to manage people. She also didn't get enough rest hence things were getting out of hand. I have stepped in and apart from modeling offered my 'energetic Reiki help' to bring her back into balance. I have also her organize things for the show which was a great success. We are very good friends now.
PatryCZA, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
When modeling I can easily find myself giving suggestion to either photographers or creatives about the location of the pictures or outfit combinations. I often get into a 'state of flow'. Working from that set of mind becomes a beautiful bouncing back interaction, a co- creative dance of ideas and one of my favorite states! Last time it happened to me and my co-creator Wendydog when we end up involving wigs and mannequins into our photo shoot of 'soft jewelry’ collection. It was super FUN!
PatryCZA please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share to everyone. What is it and why?
One of my proudest moments
PatryCZA, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
One of my proudest moments happened during a catwalk at London’s Country Life Fair for EJ. Churchill. I was modeling their hunting wear and was approached by one of their reps who not only wholeheartedly praised my work and invited to model privately for their stand but also asked to participate in their clay shooting experience the next day. It was FUN! FUN! FUN!!!
What advice would you give to the people who wants to be successful as a Model?
Creating a vision for yourself, keeping the eagerness going and always being prepared to stretch a comfort zone.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I’m totally open to ALL sort of collaborations: fitness wear, fashion wear, lingerie, artists, body painting, movement photography, mother & children (I have two beautiful kids who love cameras from both ends), mature models, outdoors in all kind of weather, commercial, extras, catwalks, modeling with animals etc...
