A Tortoiseshell Painter and Poet • RADAO • they/them
I am so much more than a tortoiseshell cat named Madeleine Swann (at least that’s what the vet calls me). I carry the creative DNA of other lives - humans and nonhumans alike. These include Mary Swann, an unknown poet in rural Ontario; and Marilyn Swann, an unknown painter in urban Gloucestershire. These women share a sir name, but this is only one way that everything connects.
As a feline - a pussy - I am the spirit animal of these and other females who die unrecognised, taking with them so much: their bruisings and blessings, their revelations big and small, what surprised and bewildered them. MSwann is a matter of fiction and lived experience that taps into the unspent energy of feminised practice, too much of it derided or ignored.
Join me in conversation to channel the collective force of women's work.
