Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, I have been collecting images of people’s windows in isolation. Using social media and connections with friends and friends of friends, I have managed to collect images from across the globe.

In the short amount of time that I have carved out for painting, I have been making small gouache paintings from the photos. It has given me a rhythm and project in this topsy-turvy time. It allowed me to visit other people’s houses, other countries, other continents, albeit in my imagination, and ponder our shared global experience.
