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.
