    Veritas Veridian, "The Green Eyed Nightingale"


    "I left Savannah, GA (my true love) for Charlotte, NC to open my burlesque and pole dance boutique, AFV Exotics Arts. It’s a jewel box studio and a sanctuary for creativity. In my world the men are dapper. Chivalry is everywhere! Play that old jazz standard, and pour me a whiskey! Shower me with emeralds, hand me those feather fans, play some Duke Ellington, and we can make your heart beat, darlin’!

    V Stands For Truth, My Love.”


    Veritas was named "sexiest exotic artist"  and "best burlesque performer" of Charlotte in 2018. She has owned AFV Exotic Arts for eight years.
