Performance  Art/Credits.

"Paisley X performed at our Anniversary Summer Ball.  With 500 guests in fancy dress, and a hundred year tradition of wild and creative partying, we can be a tough crowd to impress but Paisley managed it with ease.  She was a pleasure to work with, and her act was very strong indeed; composed, powerful, sexy - elegantly very raunchy, and funny too."  -  Geoffrey Matthews,  Secretary and CEO, Chelsea Arts Club,  London.


By combining the elements of Erotica, Drama and Circus Skills with over 10 years experience as an Erotic Artiste and Model, Paisley produces highly unique and visually powerful performances.


Being an all round entertainer as well as prolific impromptu performer, Paisley is able to cater for a wide variety of audiences and events.  Some examples of the type of shows she does are; Neo-burlesque; Bizarre Cabaret/Specialty Act; Underground Top Class Fetish/Erotica Shows for Gentlemen Only Audiences; Performance Poetry; Solo Circus Acts and Unique Variety Acts from small impromptu performances through to fully choreographed stage shows for large audiences.

Confessions of an Artist Muse by Paisley

Paisley is extremely versatile and experienced as a performance artiste for all ages hence is able to stylize shows to suit particular audiences and events.


Paisley also continues to occasionally perform with her children's only alter ego called "Ingo the clown".   Ingo is a well established classic white face clown character with over 20 years experience entertaining young children, (her preferred age group is from 0 to 7 years old.) Ingo mainly entertains the under-privileged now.

Over the past few years Paisley has inadvertently become an exclusively Underground Entertainer hence performances are highly discreet and mainly performed on a 'No Cameras Allowed' basis.  However, Paisley intends to perform some new versions of her famous Stage Show tall unicycle Striptease Performances called  'TuTu to Nude'  and  'On My Bike'  in various Variety Stage Shows and Festivals. Paisley is also presently taking steps to perform both her 25 min Theatrical Solo performance, 'Confessions of a Muse'  as well as a new neo-burlesque top hat juggling performance to Theatres on an international scale.

Last but not least ... Paisley aka Gillian Black is presently in the process of joining an acting agency to pursue her passion for acting not just for live audiences but for the camera as well.
