|Growing up, I experienced the extremes of the 1970’s stereotypical behavior: both genders were
represented clearly to my little-grrrl self. I learned to fight, to fear the adults of the world, and to loath my
biggest birth defect, being born female, even worse a female that was able to "see" more than the others
in my world.
I wanted to play war, and I fought regularly, boys mostly. I hated the color pink, which was spoon-fed in
every petite little girl bite I took. In long hair and dresses, I went about my life trying to make sense of what
it was to be a girl in this world. Seeking balance, seeking my inner truth, coming to grips with the body that
was at once, object/commodity, weapon/tool, and all the time weak/powerful, and shameful/virtuous.
Learning how to play the roles with gusto, I have traveled 36 years in a body that has not always felt like my
own; a rental that is a little short in the legs and itchy in all the spots that are just out of reach. Fairy World
allowed me to marry the warrior, and the type, or brand, of woman that I am. I love my grrrl-ness now, a
beautiful, complex and scary uniqueness that defies definitions and allows ultimate flexibility. The female
form is inherently preprogrammed into us to bring forth many emotions from every human being on the
planet. I am one such human, and this is what I see/feel about also being classified as Female Human.
My fairies are not average beauties; they represent the different aspects of my new breed of human being,
a complex being that at this time, resides in my gray matter, and now these colorful canvases too. We are
all creator and destroyer, we all also have a terminal illness; it’s called birth. I am proud to be this
complicated being commonly known as Woman, privately known as my own tiny, infinite universe. This life
is full of potential, pain and change. Choice is like a mathematical equation; never ending numbers
spiraling into the void, life is a choice; choose wisely and often.
The world I was born into did not want me.
So, I created my own world.
Welcome to my world.
This one is Fairy World.
