Build connection in lockdown: be seen

Online Artist In Residence

I’m in lock-down, to stop the spread of disease (coronavirus, 2020). You may be too.

To create a sense of community, and give people the feeling of being seen and heard, I’ve been meeting individuals, couples and groups online and doing sketches of them.

The idea started with a residency at a church in Hampstead. The “real life” exhibition was cancelled, so I have been sending out the individual drawings in daily emails, to sustain a sense of connection.

The video above shows a project I’ve been doing with the Soho member’s club, The Union.

If you’d like me to do something similar, let me know.
