I created this piece after discovering a past lover was transitioning to live his life as a woman. Though I was initially devastated by this news, I found myself inspired by his courage in shedding his façade and choosing to live a life that felt true for him. I was inspired by the idea of overcoming obstacles and the emerging of a new self.
