Hello! My name is brooke petermann. I am 39 and I am an artist living in Nebraska. For me, Covid-19 has meant a lot of hours staying home with my husband (who is a high school teacher now teaching from home) and my three children.
The one emotion that keeps coming back to me through this situation is an overwhelming gratitude and a consciousness of the goodness of people. So many people are going above and beyond to do what they can for others. The individuals who run my children’s school and church activities just keep showing up for them in new and beautiful ways and it has brought me to tears on more than one occasion. Beyond my personal journaling and photography, I have decided to mark this time by creating daily art / styled photographs around what the “stay home” orders have looked like for my family and am using the hashtag #100daysofshsh (stay home stay healthy) to collect this project.
