Meet Melbourne-based musician Shanna Watson. She’s drawn to stormy ocean blues, deep greens and amber. We sat in my living room chatting while I sketched, and when the time came to pose Shanna knew exactly what she wanted to do. Aside from being a talented musician, Shanna hosts workshops for trans/non-binary/gender questioning individuals who want a safe space to learn and explore. Shanna's own relationship to gender is in a constant state of fluctuation, as conveyed through layering color, abstraction and figurative realism in this work.
When asked if there are any projects she’d like me to share alongside this portrait, Shanna replied ‘I just like living in my caravan in the bush mostly. Building my little house.’ What a badass.
