Commissioned for Socially Distanced Yet Creatively Connected, an exhibition in response to the global pandemic and inspired by our collective experience of lockdown.
When Covid struck everyone and everything was forced to slowdown and stop.
I found myself going for daily walks in parks and my neighbourhood, something I never did before Covid hit.
I became aware of so much beauty around me nature offered, the colours and shapes of flowers and trees, leaves and vines. On one of my many walks, I noted Heliconia flowers growing in an elder gentleman’s little glasshouse which inspired this work.
