Living with an NHS nurse, the view out of my window is the one I am equally worried and proud about her working in. The one I hear about when she comes home. She suggested when I was working on this painting that there wasn’t enough hands. Despite her speaking literally, figuratively in her world there’s not enough hands either.

'Not Enough Hands' was produced during the 2020 period of quarantine, when many countries around the world went into lockdown to tackle the spread of Covid-19. It’s a personal response to crisis, uncertainty, and altered states of being.
