Valis is a commercial and editorial model, actress and performing artist based in London, UK.
Valis comes from a musical background: At the age of 12, she was awarded a place at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) to train as a classical vocalist alongside her academic studies. She also plays violin and piano to a high standard. It was at the RNCM that Valis discovered her passion and talent for performing arts. After leaving the RNCM in 2010, she went on to do further training at the Elliott-Clarke Performing Arts School in Liverpool, UK, where she developed her acting and dance performance skills.
In her professional life Valis started out as a commercial, fashion and glamour model, before branching out into acting and live performance work. In her early years, she worked primarily for hair and beauty companies including Vidal Sassoon, L'Oreal and Toni & Guy and was also an in-house model for Olympus UK. Today she enjoys modelling for lingerie, corsetry, alternative and retro clothing labels and is often described as a "modern pinup".
In December 2016, Valis co-founded her cabaret performance troupe 'The Den of Iniquity', which is "a strange and slightly twisted Operaesque Freakshow, delivering theatrical tales of debauchery and excess to both delight and disturb in equal measure." They regularly perform at events all over the UK and Europe including: Torture Garden, Wasteland, Fetish Evolution, Club Noir & ZDR Events.
