"Covid 19 was a Gethsemane moment, facing all I stood to lose, and saw slipping through my fingers. I lost a graduation ceremony, a senior exhibition, and curated gallery show, but Covid couldn't stop me from making. It made me readdress how I think about success, and what I wanted my life to be built upon. In times of chaos, art is the most rebellious thing you can do."
