Artists statement

Isolation is something I am all too familiar with.In the middle of the last decade, for a period of three years, isolation became my way of living, as due to my health, I physically couldn’t leave the house, or even my bed very often. I would be so desperate to get out of the house at times that it was if I was a prisoner trying to escape the confines of Alcatraz. The isolation experience during the COVID-19 pandemic has brought back many emotions and memories of that time, some of which I would rather not remember.
