Beginning Where - a graphic novel


This project is exploring themes of inter-sectional feminism, mythology, humanity, and religion through storytelling The accompanying artwork, while following the plot of the story, is an exploration of the marginalised body. While this work is evocative, it deliberately does not aim at being exotic or erotic, despite, and because of, the underlying storyline involving a queer romance.
As a multi-media artist and writer I explore both aesthetics and emotion. My focus is on creating illustrative work which unfolds and narrates emotions and ideologies. While my art is an exploration of the surreal through human form, my writing is focused more on the reality of the human mind.
