As my painting above reveals, writing is at the center of my artistic practice.
My most recent picture book manuscript focuses on the inspiring life of Isadora Duncan, the “founding mother” of modern dance. I am also writing children’s stories about animal artistry, animal wisdom, other figures in dance history, and culturally empowering fashion for girls.
I have recently completed what I’m calling a conceptual memoir. It might aptly be called an insult memoir, as well. This project uses the various definitions of an insult that was rumored to be applied to me, and frames a feminist discussion of work, ambition, performance, and friendship. This book also explores the connections between views of women and views of animals.
