Brushstrokes – Scribbles

Description of Artwork

Scribbles: an Escape From the Mundane’ is a product of my thoughts and emotions when I was struggling to understand my sexuality and grappling with the idea of identifying with the spectrum of gender and sexuality outside the binary, but not being able to put a label on it. In those times my art and the consumption of art and content by the queer community served as the ultimate form of solace and acceptance for me.
