Born with this voice!

I love that I wrote my memoir “Breaking Free: 45 Years in the wrong body” and published it through Brainspired Publishing. In so doing, a door opened on a new way for me to continue being creative. Hopefully, those who read it will come. away with a deeper understanding of finding a way forward while being different. As I mention, the door is open for me to explore a genre I have long enjoyed as a reader. One thing I’ve noticed in my approach to writing is that I find… Read more Born with this voice!

Writing as I once painted.

I keep wondering about the reason why I’ve taken up writing, and the basic truth of it is that I have always been a storyteller. The difference is that for many decades, my stories were described in oils. Yes, I used to be a paintress, so drawing and painting were the mediums that I shared those stories.

By Any Other Name

Been working on this painting I call ” By Any other Name “, it’s from a photo by Sam Campbell and depict a young woman in a super heroine costume ( Wonder Woman ) holding up a sign that reads ” Trans Women are Women ” during a women’s march in San Francisco. My production as a paintress is much slower than it once was but I try to work on a piece or two over months. This painting is all about representing women of trans origin in an inclusive,… Read more By Any Other Name
