Dysphoric is an exploration of my relationship with gender.

The primary theme for my work has been ‘What am I really?’, a series of artworks that deal with identity.

Originally I intended to create a self portrait that encapsulated my identity, but as the artwork developed I began to focus on gender. In previous work I’ve explored and celebrated femininity and androgyny, celebrating nonconventional feminine men and masculine women.

Dysphoric became a very personal piece about an ‘ideal’ human, that transcends gender entirely and escapes the anxieties that come with gender roles.
