American model and visual artist Frances Bean Cobain is the daughter of musicians Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love who played for the bands Nirvana and Hole respectively. Her life was greatly influenced by the celebrity status of her parents. Her father died when she was young and her mother was on drugs. Though she had no shortage of money, there were very few people she could trust. She took up modelling, but was very selective about the brands she modelled for. She made her debut with the artwork titled ‘Scumfuck’ under the pseudonym ‘Fiddle Tim’. She wanted to make a name for herself and get out of the shadow of her parents. Her marriage with musician, Isaiah Silva ended in divorce. Her quotes are taken from her interviews and general comments.
With regards to music, I don't want to pigeonhole myself and say I am a musician or a visual artist, because I feel like it's all-encompassing, and I feel like every bit of my art is related to the other.
I'm very lucky because my eyes work with almost any hair color. Thanks for the genetics, parents.

I find it interesting where grunge originated from and then where it was taken, which was high fashion. My dad was so poor that they kept going to Goodwill to get donated ripped jeans. It wasn't a fashion decision; it was an 'I don't have any money, I have no other choice' type of decision.
People don't follow me around, and they don't stop me in a way where it's excessive or invasive. It's always respectful. If it's not, I set my boundaries, and I walk away. That's just what you kind of have to do.
I had a lot of strong women around my whole life who were survivors. My grandma survived breast cancer twice and the death of her child and the death of her brother, and, you know, just a lot of tragedy, and she's still the happiest person I've ever met.
