Like Scarlett O’Hara, only masks, not a dress


Sewing notions, a duvet cut into masks.

In times of desperation, I get going! It’s been so weird processing this pandemic the way I have. First, I took to getting all the data I could to measure in a spreadsheet I created and track all the daily surges and changes. Then I realized I could not change the results and it really didn’t help my wasting my time on crunching numbers. So I focused on the needs of our healthcare workers. I couldn’t stand the thought they were doing without PPE and though my homemade masks wouldn’t protect them 100%, if nothing else, I figured they could use these as covers for their more precious surgical masks.

I feel so damn helpless!

Contemporary artist, seeker, writer. Curious to a fault. I let the fates take me where they will and never say no to an adventure. That has led me on some heart-stirring journeys and impetuous choices. I regret nothing.
