TextaQueen is known for using the humble felt-tip marker to draw out complex politics of gender, race, sexuality and identity. Her portraiture unweaves impacts of cultural and colonial legacies, and the influence of visual and popular culture on personal identity. In collaborative processes with other 'othered' and displaced people and by examining her own existence as a person of Indian origin living on others' stolen ancestral lands, she creates portraits of people not often represented in states of empowerment.
