Nuclear Castle was an apocalypse-themed high concept art show held on December 15th, curated by Valentine Enterprises, and shared with my dystopian comrades.
All of the photography in this post is shot by, and courtesy of, the incredible MJ Katz. She's a fantastic photographer and even more fantastic person.

It has come to my attention that I should open a spa. I love the spa. As Valentine Enterprises gets closer to opening a physical location, there's certainty and clarity in the vision of it being a spa(ce).Read More
Space Castle is a conceptual art party curated by Valentine Enterprises that follows the grand opening of the first luxury spa on Mars once Elon Musk colonizes the planet in the 2050s. It's a bona fide spa(ce) party. Get the feck out of shitty 2017 and get into the fabulous (20)50s!Read More
2015 and 2016 were highly productive years for me. I started my company, curated my first gallery show, went on two tours, traveled to Russia, released three albums, drove a Tesla. All important milestones in my life. However, the most important and most productive thing I've done these two years is almost completely exorcise my eating disorders.Read More
Using a combination of divination techniques including tao te ching, aleatoric hermeticism, Wikipedia, ancient druid shamanism, and Elon Musk quotes, I have seen in my crystal 8 ball what will happen in the next century. Bow to my grown-up womanly wisdom.Read More
In a Voyage LA interview, I gave some nuggets of wisdom like "I wish RuPaul was my mom" and "I eventually saged the bad influences out of my life and started Valentine Enterprises, dedicated to female soul power and quality boundary-pushing DIY production."Read More

Many pics of Russia from this summer's work/vacation trip.
+ Boat Movie, a new Saint Valentine visual album ~starring me~ shot on iPhone 6 on a boat.
I hear Kanye West hires a videographer to film him 24/7 for legal/personal/artistic/narcissistic reasons. Perhaps Mr. West should consider putting me on his video team, I mean, I have so much practice!!!!!Read More
A playground for adult nerds? A thrilling and incomparable immersive experience? A study of consciousness experiencing itself digitally, spiritually, metaphysically, on all planes? An experiment in which the boundary between the User and the Scientist is eradicated? Further, a state in which the boundaries of all Realities altogether are eradicated, or at least loosened?Read More
Recently, I gave an ultra rare interview about my life in LA, my photography, and what constitutes my perfect date, to travel/lifestyle website joieride, who asked me some basic questions (what kind of camera do you use?), some reaallyy basic questions (what's your sign?) and some intriguing food for thought (where do you go to get inspired?). Read the full article for true highlights and secrets to my soul. ;(Read More
This, directly presented to you now, is art. This is a signifier of three separately directed gazes which intersect in a manner most subtle, yet effective. This is a scientific inquiry into the eyes of existence itself. This is the rebirth of expressive sensibility. This.... is Russell.Read More
Growing up, my dream was to be a dank, dark, princess musician, who lived in a trippy mirror world, making beautiful and warped ethereal songs without any insecurities and pretensions, and not giving a fuck about what haters think (yes, me as a five-year-old girl was saying all this). It's emo as fuck being a girl... in the big, bad music world. Anyone who’s had significant artistic oppression and opposition understands the importance (and in many cases, difficulty) of standing up to the haters. Death Valentine needs to exist because there isn’t enough representation for ~weird divas~.Read More
Surreal and transcendental themes are crucial to my work and my life. I do meditate and tend to my spiritual skillset by expanding my consciousness. I have found my own ways of meditation since high school, to this day keep copious dream journals that inspire me creatively, and consider myself as in tune with the forces of the universe as I am with technological workflow. The trajectory of spirituality + technology, often unexplored, can occupy my brain for hours. I wish to keep exploring scifi themes throughout my career.Read More
Naturally, I documented my medical microdrama with selfies. (See, this too is work in a way, right? This has intent. Hospital chic is so on-trend, anyway. And people like selfies more than actual artist art. This selfie series is then literally the Sistine Chapel images' 2016 incarnation. Am I being productive enough?)Read More
2015 was an intense f~*~cking trip of a year; every second that dragged on was significant. Never in my life have I had to battle and confront myself so directly in all areas: spiritually, physically, emotionally, artistically. There were many times I questioned my motives and doubted my direction.Read More
