Musings from a Yankee artist abroad in London...
Hi, I'm Romi. I'm an American artist who lives & works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have the amazing opportunity to live in London while working on a MFA program in fine art.
The novel coronavirus, Covid-19, was declared a pandemic in March 2020 and university facilities were shut down. We didn't know when the studios would reopen, and packed up what we could to take home. I could not pack everything, I did not know when we would have access again. Left on my studio wall were the traceries of the paintings and drawings I had been working on. In some ways, more than the work itself, the wall declares: Romi was here.
