A Creative Woman

Art has and continues to be my trusted companion in life, it is what I’ve known from early on and is how I cope and express what I feel and understand about life in general and specifically about who I am. Art is a powerful tool and I have been able to express my angst, tears and joys through its manifestation. This is especially notable since my transition as I felt a powerful need to speak out visually on topics near and dear to my heart such as finally being… Read more A Creative Woman

Cancel Culture and the Trans Woman.

If your culture’s racist past, it’s xenophobic, sexist, misogynistic, colonizing views and actions are now being called to accountability, it’s not cancel culture, it’s justice for some horrible ways of being and seeing others throughout history. It’s like saying that just because I’m saying enough of your abuse, that I’m cancelling your right to express yourself, well it isn’t. I am a woman of trans origin, I’m queer and in spite of the fact that I have experienced quite a bit of transphobia over the years,  people of colour and… Read more Cancel Culture and the Trans Woman.

Trusting my story to my co-writer.

and trusting myself to put it out there. I first began writing my story because of a need to better understand myself, a bit like I have a habit of doing when working on a painting, I will get up from the easel and back away some ten feet and just relax and look at what I have done and then decide on one thing I really want to change in order to improve upon the painting, I do this throughout and it has served me well. I mention the… Read more Trusting my story to my co-writer.

Feminist Paintings

Smashing Images© Circé oil on canvas / huile sur toile30in. x 40in.  In this piece I address how for many women, we fight with body image issues, and often deal with self-loathing as a result of being told by the media that there is but one acceptable body type ( airbrushed and photoshopped to the X degree ). It is the breaking of that mirror of how we perceive ourselves, also the not wanting to see our bodies and maybe even the break from all the stereotypes we are constantly being… Read more Feminist Paintings

The First Time.

The first time I dressed in the gender I knew myself to be I felt an overwhelming sense of being right, I could finally allow myself to open up as a woman. Imagine hiding from yourself for about forty-five years only to finally find the wherewithal to come out at long last, and this only because your life depended on it. I would, whenever I could draw and paint female models, feel as though this brought me closer to who I was, it was like a secret way in which… Read more The First Time.

Motivations.

I wrote my memoirs partly because I saw it as a way to show women like myself as being human, with all this entails. My story is imbued with tragedy and humour, with self-loathing and acceptance, I wanted to share how my mind was able to survive thanks to what I would describe as my creativity which allowed me to often transport myself elsewhere when things got too difficult.I wanted to tell a story of hope and of coming into one’s own with a good measure of happiness and I… Read more Motivations.
