Sketched while Zooming.

I love the connection, but find video calls draining afterward. 

A filmmaker told me that when you’re being filmed, you need to work in small sessions, because the camera sucks the energy out of you.

Could it be that the laptop camera has the same effect?

May you be blessed with people who get you. Who see you, and make the effort to connect. 

Be that for someone today.

These small, original portraits are painted on top pages cut and upcycled from my sketchbooks.

This portrait is from the series, 100 Portraits in 100 Days: A Quarantine Diary. 

What began as a creative challenge to focus my energies during the first weeks of solo quarantine in March 2020, evolved into a diary of my experience.
