Analyzing my story, a little.

You all know that when I get started on something, it can get absolutely topsy-turvy. I am breaking down certain elements of my story, attempting to isolate certain parts of it that are either underlying stories be they social, economical or generational and how they juxtapose with trauma and gender identity.The main element is of course my gender identity and how this has been with me from early childhood but there are many other elements worth exploring in the memoirs. One of these is my family’s social, economical, linguistic and… Read more Analyzing my story, a little.

Book Excerpt ( Why I created My Vagina Paintings )

I must have seen the Monologues at least a dozen times, if not more, and heard how my sisters spoke of their vaginas, what they had been through, what they had experienced. It gave me the courage to speak of vaginas from my perspective, to show vulvas through paintings, in my art.  I embarked on a series of pieces that I shared with all.

BLURB

Breaking Free: 45 Years In The Wrong Body is a dive into my life as I recount certain moments and periods while prisoner of a body that was never mine and how I eventually, after innumerable sleepless nights, attempts at escaping from who I knew myself to be from early on, a female trapped in a male’s body. I manage to survive mainly due to my creative mind, my desire to draw and paint to imagine that I would eventually break free from what seemed to be my destiny. You… Read more BLURB

Why I wrote my story.

My story and why I decided to finally write it. I can say right off that this is not the story of a heroine, because I am decidedly not such a person. There have been many memoirs written by women like myself, women of trans origin.
