I create work that explore themes of identity, sexuality and gender. Drawing from my personal experiences, I set out to dissect the root of gender connotations within societal, cultural and religious context. Through my work I aim to dismantle and redefine such connotations, creating a dialogue within the works relating to history and personal experience.
