Model Mayhem Portfolio – Gallery
While in her first year of art school (the Alberta College of Art & Design) in 2007, Hendrix was asked by a fellow student to help with a few photography projects. Quickly one photo shoot became another and before long, she had done over a hundred projects withing 2 years. Now, Hendrix works regularly as a live figure model and with photographers around the city of Calgary when not on tour. She enjoys the work and feels privileged to have creating beautiful pieces with so many incredible artists and photographers.
In 2011 Hendrix was crowned Miss Alt Calgary, for her Alternative Modeling Work and has since been featured in a number of magazines and galleries all over North America.

Modeling for Brian Bitista in 2011 was a rewarding and fun experince for Hendrix. The live reference modeling was used to create this beautiful painting. Many people who saw it at the downtown Calgary gallery recognised Carisa from the painting imidiately, mostly by her unusual pinky fingers, perfectly rendered in the work.
