Tristan Risk first cut her teeth on the cabaret and burlesque stages from Vancouver to Budapest, Helsinki to Rome. Having performed striptease and stunts in over twelve countries worldwide, she made the transition in 2012 from stage to screen with The Soska Sister’s body modification horror, "American Mary".
From that point she has since dedicated equal time to both stage and screen in a large number of genre films. She has cultivated her sideshow/circus collective, The Caravan Of Curiosities, with her partner Burns the Dragon. Together they also offer workshops and classes in education about snake handling and husbandry in addition to their onstage performances. Their shared passion for herpetology founded The Circus Sideshow Reptiles collective, under the umbrella of Caravan Of Curiosities
Artist Statement: I have been a huge Tristan Risk fan since 2014 when Japanese comic artist, Daiju Kurabayashi, and I created a comic adaptation of Jill Gevargizian’s short film, Call Girl. I love Tristan. She is more than a "Horror Queen", she is a Goddess beyond time and age. I have drawn her as a “Snake Woman”. It was a smooth process, because the theme of Tristan and a snake has always been on my mind.
