Artist Statement

This multimedia piece reflects my experience of working during the pandemic in 2020. I felt a greater sense of community by working outside the home. I chose to do that rather than being in isolation at home living alone afar from family. “Everyday Hero” is what my Thresholds employment specialist, Emily, called me; so that’s why I chose to use this title for this art piece. I felt a sense of ease and flow working during the pandemic and it felt great to contribute during this trying time. I wanted to be modest, but finally accepted the role and title bestowed upon me as “Everyday Hero.”
