This is the story of a multi-disciplinary artist studying Creative and Therapeutic arts in USW. She loves wildlife and nature as a whole, and her favourite animal species are birds!

Has lockdown changed you? How? Why?

It made me realise the governments of the world are led by nobody else other than slightly more higher up peeps who also don't know what they're doing. I am a lot more critical of world leaders and the political systems and also extremely self concious of what is happening to the natural world.

What made you smile or brought you joy in lockdown? Can you explain it?

Going out (under restrictions) and exploring areas that are usually swamped with people. The world is beautiful when it's not misused.

Have you changed since lockdown? Tell me why.

I am a lot more hermitty. I don't miss being out and I like only going out for essentials. I feel so much more at peace alone and my attidute to work has even improved as well!

What is the story behind your hand art?

In early lockdown when the world stopped and went silent, nature was the only thing that got louder. I have never managed to be more active and thankful of our beautiful environment than this year, and was blessed to be able to visit so many beautiful scenic spots that tourists would otherwise snatch up all to themselves. My hand represents the blissfulness and tranquility of the woods, whilst the glitchiness of certain areas represents the sudden stop of technology, therefore allowing nature a well deserved pause.
