In plain Sight, a queer trans woman author!

The Space Between, oil on canvas, 36in. x 48in. Creating and being unapologetic about being a queer and atheist woman of trans origin is, as with other outsider identities, can be challenging at times, but ultimately, liberating, especially as I age. I choose to be visible, not to shy away from being seen. It’s just the way I am. In some milieu’s, I might be perceived as a throwback of the traditional trans woman, the one into surgeries and passing and adopting hetero-normative habits. However, the truth of it is… Read more In plain Sight, a queer trans woman author!

Memoir news and new Thriller in the works!

As I excitedly await the release of my memoirs, published through Brainspired Publishing, I began imagining something new to write about, this time I wanted it to be a fiction and so I embarked upon this adventure that is writing a thriller. My life has been about coming to terms with who i am as a woman of transsexual origin, finding love and working through much of the trauma as well as all the wonders of being Queer. My life has been one of drawing and painting, describing and sharing… Read more Memoir news and new Thriller in the works!

Writing my Thriller novel.

After I wrote my memoirs “Breaking Free:45 Years In The Wrong Body”, I wasn’t sure if I would go on to write anything else as I had not really entertained the notion that I was a real writer, but then something changed in me. People began telling me how what I had written touched them, that they couldn’t put my book down, then I read the reviews of my book on Amazon, I was blown away by the positive comments and I began to feel encouraged, motivated even. I also… Read more Writing my Thriller novel.

Feeling Fortunate, and Thankful.

Sometimes I just can’t believe how fortunate I am, I’m not saying life has been easy as it evidently has looked more like a roller-coaster ride for me than a simply walk in the proverbial park. Yet here I am being signed to a contract with a traditional publisher, yes you read me right, I am with Brainspired Publishing, exclusive publishers of LGBTQ+ authors in a variety of genres. At present, I am collaborating with them, taking a fresh look at the cover, then we’ll move on to editing and… Read more Feeling Fortunate, and Thankful.

Outsider

When your view of the world looks different from how most perceive it, maybe it’s due to how you have always understood and interpreted things. It’s not a wrong approach, not a fault or mixed wiring in your brain or character, you are simply uniquely you. For a long time I had the notion that being an artist was the reason I often feel like an outsider but then I observe other artists, I don’t get that impression as some of them seem quite comfortable in social settings. Then I… Read more Outsider

Second Book on the way!

I am so happy to announce that this second book ” Circé’s Art: a post transition evolution “, different from the first one which is a memoir and yet so intimately attached to it since it is also about my transition and identity as a woman. This time, it will be through my paintings that I document and visually narrate my views and awareness of certain aspects of coming into my own as a woman. The paintings from 2001 onwards speak to my evolution since transitioning, as a woman of… Read more Second Book on the way!

The Space Between ( in progress )

I wanted to explore the ” othering ” of women of trans origins, of trans misogyny, even within queer women’s spaces who promote inclusivity of trans folk. I asked some friends and acquaintances to meet me at a women’s bath house in Toronto, got permission from the owner and proceeded to set up a scene and got someone to take the photo from which I worked on to produce this painting.It goes as follows, I am sitting aside from the other women, my sisters, physically apart, not by desire but… Read more The Space Between ( in progress )
