Love in the Time of Quarantine” was made as a creative response to the new reality we found ourselves in during the first few weeks of lockdown. I was home alone for probably two weeks watching the news and decided I needed to create. This is before I adopted my kitten so my companions were Zoom calls and my plants. Thus, the introduction of the love interest!
