Actress, artist, gamer, cosplayer, singer, storyteller, and speaker, Fox Smith has been performing across St. Louis and throughout the midwest for over ten years. She joined her first band in 2004 as the singer and frontwoman. Although she was trained in classical opera, the band focused on original rock compositions and continued to write and play for the next four years. When the group parted ways, Fox took a brief hiatus during which she focused more heavily on her illustrative career and finished her education with a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis. From that point, she focused her musical efforts on blues and jazz and started a new group: Madam Fox and the Hounds.
As an actress, Fox has appeared in roles that range from a Vietnam War era nurse in A Piece of My Heart, to the Elven Queen in a stage adaptation of The Hobbit, to a love-lorn singing chef in a feature length original musical film, to a Japanese American woman dealing with the fallout of the Pearl Harbor bombing in the world premier of White to Gray. She has continued to act in various short films and has performed with some of the top acting and musical talent in St. Louis.
In 2013, fate struck when Fox attended her first comic convention. An avid gamer, anime/animation connoisseur, and comic lover she was thrilled when she discovered that intricate costumes weren’t limited to Halloween. She thrust her self headlong into the fantastic world of cosplay and became heavily involved in the Geek Feminism initiative.
Fox is the Vice President of Super Heroines, Etc., a 501(c)3 non profit whose mission is to empower women to embrace their inner nerd. She is actively pursuing her acting career and looks forward to continue telling stories in new and interesting ways.
