Sketchbook is a space where I don't have myself fully figured out. Here I can present myself as a rough idea of who I am or might be. I’m allowing myself to be reflective, unsure, and inquisitive. For a queer person, Facebook and Instagram do not prove to be the safest platforms to explore one’s identity.
In Simultaneous Invention, I bridged the gap between my private and public identity by exploring public gendered experiences. Since then I have spent time thinking about my gender in relation to my happiness without the pressure of creating artwork.
I now identify as trans. The decision to transition feels terrifying and brave. Through this platform I hope to document this experience honestly, safely, and creatively.
