Trish’s Inspiration 

“During the Covid-19 lockdown, my perception of time became distorted. Days dragged on while weeks seemed to fly by.  Living in a remote rural setting meant I was insulated from much of the restrictions, but I found trying to work with children at home was impossible. My creative energy was diverted into the domestic sphere. Meeting my family’s needs and keeping everyone sane and well nourished became my priority. Life slowed down.  This photograph Self Portrait with Snail, June 3rd, 2020 depicts my full submission, without resistance or friction to this new dynamic.” (Trish Morrissey, 2020)
