Coming out is hard.
It is an incredibly tough world out there. Telling your family, friends, colleagues, partners that you are anything other than straight, or that you are trans, or nonbinary - it takes guts and can even be dangerous.
This collection brings light to the LGBT+ community and creates a dedicated space for our bodies and our voices to be celebrated, to be heard, to be freed.
As the collection grows, these images will be shared as far and wide as possible, to lift up our voices, unite the community, surround us in love, celebrate our diversity and empower us all to join together in celebrating the amazing bodies that house all that we are.

If you would like to open the closet of your own story, please use the contact form to enquire and I will be very happy to chat to you about all that is involved. I know that it can be daunting, so I am here to help!
If you do decide to go for it, the process will be for you to send a photo (or a few if you'd prefer me to pick one) - all of which will be deleted from my devices as soon as I've completed the painting, for your privacy.
I will discuss colour options and layout with you before finalising anything.
I would love for you to share your coming out story for me to post alongside photos of the piece - it can be as long or short as you like, a simple sentence or even multiple paragraphs, all of which will be done anonymously unless you specifically state otherwise. The original will of course be posted out to you!
