Arielle and Brendan have been professional muses for the better part of a decade and have provided dynamic inspiration for fine artists, illustrators, and photographers at all levels. In addition to posing privately and for classes the Fashion Institute of Technology, NYU, Pratt, SVA, NYAA, 92Y, the Art Students League, and many other institutions, this dynamic duo can often be found teaming up for fabulously costumed sketch nights at renowned venues such as the Society of Illustrators Art & Design Drawathon, Brooklyn Sketch Night, and more.
Arielle & Brendan specialize in adventurous and breathtaking poses, exhilarating onstage chemistry, and fabulously eclectic style. Together they maintain a vast wardrobe that includes original designs, vintage/retro fashion looks from every decade of the 20th/21st Centuries, character costumes, props, drapery, furniture, lighting, and much more.
During the pandemic, several members of the Pearling Principle created and launched their own interdisciplinary online sketch party, Soirée des Muses.
