During lockdown this year, I started to observe the world around me in much closer detail. I began to notice the shapes and forms of everyday objects in a different way. The letter of the alphabet appeared in unexpected places like keys in a door or a fence at the beach. I started collecting images 
of each letter and out them together to form the whole alphabet. This artwork forms a good memory of my time at home during remote learning in the Covid era.
