Art Unlocked Orleans House Gallery (2020)

Created from found objects whilst working as a gardener in lockdown, including a poem of 100 words that I created as part of the cornerHouse Art Centre poetry initiative – Covid-19 Lockdown 100

This is my Life…

Working: gardener,

Home, allotment,

Date night Lidl,

Deliver Lou…Mum

Declutter, garage,

Shred, upcycle,

Clean, repurpose, reuse

Life expands

Teaching art group on Zoom,

Creativity, connection,

Friendship, neighbours,

Thursday Night Clap

NHS, Community

Making plans:

Art class designing

December 2020, Spring 2021

‘Seriously’?!!

Random conversations with strangers,

On the meaning of life

‘Surely its 42’?

Isolation, anxiety,

Living on my own,

Self-care,

New recipes, spa days,

Film nights, reading,

Taking care of myself

Lockdown easing,

Social distancing walks with friends,

Laughter, tears,

Virtual hugs.

Is this the new norm’?
