Being newly married, and ready to take on a new adventure, entering lockdown hit hard and fast. With infections and deaths sweeping the world at speed akin to the recent Kangaroo Island Bushfires, and with a broken heart and a fear of the unknown, the artist’s imagination and love for modern art became a comfort and escape. Days turned to weeks, and an overseas honeymoon became an impossibility. Stress was compounded by the monotony of each day at home, from being an essential worker and without the normality of seeing family or friends beyond a phone screen. From within the bubble of housebound safety the artist was inspired to create more and more artwork influenced by the resilience, strength and beauty of Kangaroo Island, in her own way. Now, while the artist’s honeymoon to America would have to wait, she found a long-lost love for creating art in these truly curious times.
