For over a decade I have explored gender identity in my work. My interest in the determinants of gender is rooted in feminism and began when I was an undergraduate psychology major.
Vintage Trans Beauty Sketches
This is a series of small watercolor sketches of vintage transgender women created on accordion files. The reference material for these works was editorial photography from the midcentury. 
I am honored that this work was chosen to be included in the de Young Open Exhibition. For more information about this show, please click here
