Princess: Musician

Princess2

Princess is an Entertainer, Singer/Songwriter, Musician and all round Fashionista! With a great eye for detail he takes the best of Men’s fashion and the best of Women’s accessories for a unique and fashion forward statement about blurring the gender lines in Fashion. Fortunately Princess is well versed at walking his heels, recieveing his first pair of stacked heels as a child (as was the fashion of the day) and now regularly adds a minimum of 5inches to his height! Show stopping Polished Nails that reflect his sparkle and love for the alternative is a trademark of his look.

Princess is not only about Fashion. He also is an accomplished Singer and Musician, studying Singing at the Elder Conservatorium of Music in Adelaide. He began playing piano at the age of 6 and regularly performs around Melbourne as a backing Vocalist and Musician. He also records with a Triple J Unearthed Artist with content on iTunes, Spotify & Soundcloud.

However if this isn’t enough, Princess’ love of Makeup has added the glitter and sparkle to his polished look. As a MAC-Pro makeup artist Princess has created a look that has been compared to Kardshian inspired polished perfection!
Combine all of these elements, and you have Princess. Unique, polished, high heel wearing fun that is frightfully entertaining!

Princess is appearing at Queer Identities – Midsumma Edition.

Amanda Marx: Poet and Author

amandamarx
Amanda Marx is a painter, writer and spoken word performer. Amanda appeared in the nationally televised – No To Homophobia campaign in 2013. Her inaugural exhibition of abstract expressionist symbolist works at Gasworks Arts Park as part of Midsumma 2013 was a sell out. The large format, acrylic and mixed media works on canvass are emblematic of mankind’s search for wisdom across the ages – a meditation on the philosophy, literature, spirituality, art and science of the dreams & imaginings of – ‘man’s sacred fascination with man’. (Seneca)
Amanda’s writing focuses on the biographical and anecdotal with a heavy-handed dose of romantic anarchism. She is addicted to Onegin/Pushkin Sonnets, a stanza of which bookends her shortlisted – Ada Cambridge Biographical Prose entry – ‘One Perfect day’.
Amanda has worked as a dish pig, mountain guide, disability services facilitator and Collins St suit. When she grows up she plans to be a benevolent beered-up dictator.

Amanda is appearing on the Queer Identies – Midsumma Edition panel during Midsumma 2016.
