Trusting my story to my co-writer.

and trusting myself to put it out there. I first began writing my story because of a need to better understand myself, a bit like I have a habit of doing when working on a painting, I will get up from the easel and back away some ten feet and just relax and look at what I have done and then decide on one thing I really want to change in order to improve upon the painting, I do this throughout and it has served me well. I mention the… Read more Trusting my story to my co-writer.

Vampires

Nights Sweet Reward / La Nuit et sa Récompense@Circé Oil on canvas / huile sur toile16” x 20”The vampiress holds her lover in her embrace, her vampire nature, a symbol of a strength known by women about their sisters but feared and discouraged in a patriarchal society.

It is the breaking of that mirror of how we perceive ourselves, also the not wanting to see our bodies and maybe even the break from all the stereotypes we are constantly being… Read more Feminist Paintings

Am I a Woman.

How do I know I am a woman since there are those who would push back on who I know myself to be, who would tear me down, lay waste to my very sense of self, all in the name of purity. But they are wrong. I am a woman and like most women, I am unique in many ways and do not fit neatly into a preconceived mold of femininity or femaleness, of hormone levels, menstrual history, not even of how one is raised. I am a woman full… Read more Am I a Woman.
