How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

‘Whale away’ was created late at night when my children and husband were sleeping. It embodies the feeling of wanting to detach from the reality of the situation I found myself in, the world at home, day in and day out. Turning to my imagination and dreaming up another world to be in. In the case of ‘Whale away,’ I’m in a safe, cosy boat surrounded by endless space of sea and stars. With travel no longer an option I hope this image provides a place for other people to escape to during this time we must stay at home.
