“As long as I can remember I have been sending and receiving letters in the mail. I have always felt that letter writing allows a more fun and personal way for one to communicate with friends and loved ones.
In these uncertain times of the coronavirus, when most of us don’t know when we can safely visit our friends and loved ones again, I have found it even more important to write and send letters to keep in touch with everyone.
Drawing from this theme of letters and their importance in meaningful communication, I created this art piece which is written with a collection of some of the special letters people have written to me over the years; each line in the art piece being a sentence from a different important letter I have saved.”
