Title: ' Jamie Clayton '.
From the Portrait Series I'm working on at the moment called - ' Sista's '. Jaymie Clayton is the 5th Portrait completed in the Series which started conceptualizing and then working on in November 2018. I was born as an Intersex Person. And now at the age of 50 this year, I wanted to celebrate it by doing a series of Portraits honoring others like me. More specifically, a painted expression of each and everyone the amazing, heroic, intelligent, loving and creative Trans Women, Intersex people and Gender Fluid Individuals that I have encountered and sometimes been fortunate enough to become friends. Influencers in my life along the way. Good bad or indifferent - ALL these Individuals have and continue to change my life for the better. This is my thank you.
I'm hoping the completed ' Sista's ' series will have around 80 Portraits ( Including a handful of ' Dual Portraits ' ( 2 in 1 ) and will be picked up for an Exhibition first at Maitland Reginal Art Gallery then hopefully more dates through to a final Exhibition at Mardi Gras 2020 Arts Festival... This all depends on when I can actually produce all the Painting I want to include. STAY TUNED!
