This is an exploration of body and gender. As a non-binary person, I have a complicated relationship with my body. I find it difficult to manoeuvre in a world that only sees black and white, when there is a fluid gradient of colour. My artwork is a celebration of that spectrum.

In the UK today, non-binary gender identities are still not legally recognised. Within an increasingly transphobic environment, actions need to be taken by everyone, because trans rights are human rights.
