Welcome to my blog site!

It has been one year since the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 a worldwide pandemic. This past year has compelled us to re-evaluate the way we live our lives.

During the lockdowns, technology had a prevalent effect on our lives. Social media provided us artists with an amazing platform, it crossed borders and age groups, enabling us to reach out and communicate even during the lockdowns. Nevertheless, in the non-digital world, the Arts were almost completely pushed to the sidelines.

Hopefully, in the future we will realize how fundamental the Arts are to our lives and the vital role they play in helping us make sense of the world.

For the past year, I have been working on two series dealing with the COVID-19 . The first series “Home Alone” is comprised of drawings of the elderly in lockdown. The second series “Avoid Hugs & kisses” is boldly colored oil painting expressing the psychological effects of the pandemic on us all.
