Safety First was created in response to the shift we all had to make during the pandemic. Something as simple as wearing a mask shows that we are aware that our actions can potentially protect ourselves, as well as others. It’s a gentle reminder that masks are for safety and not oppression. The color palette used is also intentional, as it draws attention and is meant to remind the viewer of caution signs such as those found in construction zones.
My drawings and illustrations are my perception of the world around me and my place within it. The female figure is central in my work, depicting my personal emotions in reaction to my environment. Organic matter is another constant in my work; plants are meant to remind the viewer that we exist in the natural world, not solely as a spectator, but as a part of it.
