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.

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.

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!

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 )
