“I wanted to create pieces that are emblematic of this time, something meaningful to me but also that would represent my culture, I wanted to bring forth the traditional aspect but to show that this was a face mask.
The masks resemble a miniature dance apron and are made very similar to how I make traditional dance aprons.
Although these masks are strictly decorative and must not be used as a face mask, I have added ties to the sides so that they can be put on the face for photo purposes only.”
