Christiane Shillito is a woman with many different layers. Widely recognized as veteran fetish and art nude model Ulorin Vex, she is also Malady Charlotina the artist and painter with a BSc (hons) degree in Biology. All three incarnations are reflected in her artworks, which depict beautiful but slightly sinister characters often interacting with some element of nature, whether it be based in reality or part of a more imagined personal mythology.

Her fascination with highly stylized figures and dramatic gestures is influenced by a decade of nude modeling both for still photography and fine artists. While many of her paintings use other models and adult performers she has worked with or admired during her modeling career, many are also self-portrait pieces. with depictions of various alter-egos engaging in scenarios inspired by her love of fantasy, natural history and outdoor adventures.
