From the artist:
At the beginning of the quarantine, I was filled with uncertainty. I worked for many months scheduling to vend my work at shows, festivals, and even getting bookings for creating art installations. I was proud of myself. My entire livelihood was stripped from me within a matter of days. Throughout the mandatory lock down, I worked online and in the studio. Promoting and gathering as many commissions as possible, overworking myself in fear my art business would fail. I kept having to ask my partner “Am I Okay?”
