All Stories are New.

Stories, written and in films, often treat trans characters as deficient, as broken, rarely looking any deeper than their appearance. Trans characters in film usual fall into mostly negative narratives, usually dependent upon others good graces for their survival. Family and friends get to be who decides if the trans character will be accepted, tolerated and simply thrown away. My story has not been sensational, my struggles though personal can be found in the lives of so many. My memoirs, I hope, speaks more to resolve and of a deep… Read more All Stories are New.

Another Trans memoir, maybe not.

I look upon my memoirs as a throwback genre of how women such as myself used to write their memoirs , mainly about childhood and when I knew I was a female in the wrong body, about the transition. Then I read my story and discover that it’s so much more than this, my life, even as it relates to being trans from birth, speak to adventures I’ve had along the way, my memoirs are filled with all manner of events, usually having little to nothing to do with being… Read more Another Trans memoir, maybe not.

Vampires

Nights Sweet Reward / La Nuit et sa Récompense@Circé Oil on canvas / huile sur toile16” x 20”The vampiress holds her lover in her embrace, her vampire nature, a symbol of a strength known by women about their sisters but feared and discouraged in a patriarchal society. I depict her lover, eyes closed and abandoning herself to whatever may come. In this scene, I am exploring the Madonna / Whore persona as well as the huntress and prey dynamic.

Erotic Art

Rope Play / Jeux de Cordes©Circéoil on canvas / huile sur toile 24” x 36” Female sexuality, power exchange, consent. Circé sees such activities as a possible subversive act of lampooning patriarchy. She does not perceive any woman who participate in Kink or BDSM play as non-feminist, but rather sees it all as just another expression of sexuality.  For Circé, there is no shame in consensual sexuality.
