Hot List: Andrea Mary Marshall
As a mutli-medium self-portrait artist, Andrea Mary Marshall, is in a constant motion of reinvention with each new project. Her work explores the elements of femininity, masculinity, sexuality, religion, love, heart-break, self-exploration and pop culture. Using herself and her body as her canvas, Andrea's work is provocative, thought-provoking and some might even say NSFW, but it's her comment on society's views and opinions of female beauty and sexuality (and feminism in general) that really makes us hot for her.
In an interview with Artnet.com regarding her last show "The Feminist Calendar 2016" Andrea had this to say:
“My view on feminism in general is that its okay to be sexy, it’s okay to feel sexy, and it’s also okay to not be sexy. Feminism means equal rights to self-determination and the ability to live life as one wants to.”

What do you do to stay hot? Why does it work? Meditation because hotness begins in the mind. Yoga because it connects me to my body. Squats to keep my ass in shape! Epsom salt baths and body brushing to remove toxins and keep my skin soft. Ginseng Moisture Masks and Squalene Oil from Ling Skincare to keep my skin moisturized in the winter. 3 litres of water a day to cleanse and hydrate from the inside. My diet is dairy-free, gluten-free and sugar-free, I make organic bone broth every week and eat lots of vegetables for nourishment. Vitamin D3 because getting enough sunlight in the winter can be a challenge. Spirulina and Chlorophyll to keep my cells in check. Acupuncture for my blood. Laughter, love, and dancing to stay sane and sexy.
