This is the story of a lifelong original who carves a unique path through life, struggling to make her way with humor, dignity, and wisdom. In this frank, poetic second volume of her published journals the artist describes how she maintains her artistic center while raising a young daughter and caring for her beloved dying mother at home, stealing time to paint and write during all hours of the night. In Coyote Woman Le Marque describes her love affair with the desert, a place which has proven remarkably fertile for her. This book contains new Prologue and Epilogue sections, as well as eight color pages of the artist's visual documentation of her rich inner life.

Tina Le Marque, aka Tina Coyote, has worked as a professional artist and writer for over forty years. Her iconographic paintings illustrate a synthesis of mythologies, personal archeology, and her inner life. She is the author of Warrior Woman: A Journal of My Life As an Artist. The author is currently working the third volume in this series. She lives in Tucson, Arizona, where she continues to make every single artistic thing that comes into her mind, no matter what, in addition to passing on her practical wisdom, courage, and love of life in her practice as a psychotherapist. She is a respected international writer and speaker on the subjects of addiction and substance abuse recovery, creativity and the inner life, and women's issues.From Library Journal:
This book, which updates the author's first autobiographical self-help work, Warrior Woman (Artists & Writers, 1991), is the second in a proposed trilogy. Le Marque, a painter in Santa Fe, aims to chronicle her struggles with life and creativity. She describes a world full of mystical illusions and spiritual experiences as she works to create the painting that ultimately appears on the cover of the book. The author is a good writer, and many of her journal entries are lyrical. In the end, however, this work remains the story of a somewhat self-absorbed, generally likable, and talented but obscure artist. Although it is meant to inspire others to take risks and to seek personal growth, it does not always achieve that goal. Buy only where demand warrants.?January Adams, Franklin Twp. P.L., Somerset, NJ
