New Story in the works!

I started playing around with a story, it’s fiction, more akin, I think, as a crime-drama-supernatural-thriller ( I don’t know, lol ) about a series of gruesome murders that points to some wild animal with a taste for human flesh and who locals blamed on the Loup-Garou ( also known as a werewolf ). The protagonist is an introverted woman of trans origin living up in a mountainous of Quebec called Lanaudière she was raised on such folk tales and decides to solve a more recent string of similar murders… Read more New Story in the works!

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

A Trans memoir, a human story.

My memoirs, what I wrote of my life from the point of view of feeling trapped in the wrong body is influenced by all manner of things, among them is the book Conundrum which I read when I first began my transition.  One aspect I seem to have borrowed from her writings is that I have to some degree, lessened the trauma and pain I experienced throughout.

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!

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

Writing a Trans Story.

Is it possible or more to the point, is it a good idea to write a story about a woman of trans origin that is provocative, who’s main character is problematic and deeply flawed, who spends the first forty five years of their life hiding in plain sight, even attempting to cure themselves at one point by becoming a cult member, or is this what can make such a story more humane and relatable. If the character, in spite of knowing deep down that she is trapped in the wrong… Read more Writing a Trans Story.
