Artwork statement:

COVID-19 brought societies to an abrupt halt, giving the chance to consider priorities and glimpse the efforts of the natural world to regain balance. The lockdowns offered the opportunity for some to slow down and allow time to create.

Stitching enabled me to focus my attention on the present. Creating masks using reclaimed materials allowed me to take pleasure in simple stitches and processes to reflect upon my time in lockdown.
