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 )

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.

This painting is all about representing women of trans origin in an inclusive,… Read more By Any Other Name

Coming to grips with me.

As many humans, I have this tendency of not really seeing or fully acknowledging my worth, I am self-deprecating and don’t always understand that who and what I am has value, is valuable.

It was refused because it considered sexually provocative by Facebook. Like Dawn mentioned in a post, if this were a man on that image the whole scene would have been perceived as someone who was down and out and trying to crawl out of a box, yet a woman in the same position is… Read more Always count on Facebook to censor your art

Close Call with a Cold Ending ( free peek )

When I was maybe fifteen, I was playing in our backyard on Albert Street. It had recently snowed so the ice rink that my father had made for us to play on was covered in about a foot or more of snow. It was the wet kind; perfect for making snowballs and snowmen. It packed just right and if you made a snowman, it would stay until a good thaw.  I remember this particular incident well. It was early evening, just after supper time. I was with a cousin and… Read more Close Call with a Cold Ending ( free peek )
