Bernie is the quintessential Rockabilly gal! Bernie truly lives the Rockabilly lifestyle From head to toe, the way she dresses,the music she listens to, her hair and makeup, she even managed to snag herself a Rockabilly Cat himself! Her husband Rockabilly musician Levi Dexter is not only a talented musical artistic but photographs Bernie exclusively and I must say they make a great team.
Bernie takes her career very seriously that is why I was so very honored when she agreed to model one of my aprons Bernie is really wonderful to work with. With all her popularity she has managed to still stay a sweet and down to earth gal!

*How did you discover the world of pinup modeling?

I was a make up artist , hair dresser & wardrobe person on photo shoots & i was always being asked to show the models how to pose.
heheee..




*How does your pinup persona carry into your everyday life?

Well i am the same. i mean i am not hard to spot. your average rockabilly girl.
most of the time i have a ponytail & dungarees on.

*How do you think the role of pinup girl has changed from the 40?s & 50?s till today?

It really hasn't. the pin up girl is the girl next door who looks like she won't, but DOES pose suggestively.


*I love that your husband is also your exclusive photographer....what would be your favorite & least favorite part of working with your husband all the time?
It is wonderful. i honestly have no complaints. we are best friends. he is super fun & really knows where i am coming
from. we are influenced by the same things . Music, movies ect...



*What is your greatest inspiration?

Rockabilly music. i mean from the 1950s. i envision shoots & scenes when i hear it!


*What is your life?s ambition?
To be immortal.


*Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

With a 2 year old!


*Do you have any current projects you are working on at the moment?

I am working on new projects all the time. my most exciting is working with Olivia.
