My Empty Streets

We are at an interesting time in history. Of greatest importance is that guidelines for staying safe and healthy are respected.

As an artist having this time of isolation is a unique gift for creative self exploration. It is a time to assess past work and projects and work on new ideas. Time in the studio is always a bonus. I started a project I call Safe in My Studio. On my walks I collect dried flowers that have weathered the winter months as well as newly budding trees and shrubs. I then explore various lighting techniques.

When on my walks I see and capture the ways in which my Pittsburgh community is dealing with this pandemic. I call this project My Empty Streets.
