Becoming the Writer I Dreamed.

I began write a couple of years ago in regards to my memoirs, but the fact of the matter is that I had been writing for quite some time, usually notes, descriptions for my paintings or putting down memories. I was an artist, a paintress for decades before ever imagining I could really write. Then, I decided I just had to write my memoirs and I wasn’t sure of myself or my skills, which I admit, were not too professional. So I hired a co-writer of sorts, someone with the… Read more Becoming the Writer I Dreamed.

A Storyteller is Born.

As I take on a new story, not about something as intimate and familiar as a memoir or even a book representing my art but instead I chose fiction, and while I am not ready to go in depth about the plot, I can say that it’s going to be a thriller. The protagonist, a character created out of whole cloth yet with aspects I am close to in that she is queer and a woman of trans origin, everything else about her will have to wait for when the… Read more A Storyteller is Born.

From Paintress to Writer.

So far in this new adventure in writing, I have over the past two years gotten my memoirs completed as well as adding the finishing touches on my art book.This is as I mention, new to me. I expertise, what I have done professionally since the early eighties was drawing and painting though it goes back much further. Over the past few years I began to feel less enthusiastic vis-à-vis painting, felt I had done what I set out to do since 2001 and just needed to explore a different… Read more From Paintress to Writer.

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 )

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
