Jess BurbankBellevue, Washington, US
I'm an artist and art teacher working towards a career in illustration in Bellevue, Washington. I live with my husband of 16 years, my two kids that I also homeschool (ages 12 and 9), and two silly gerbils, Star and Chip. With every spare minute, I'm painting, usually with watercolor, and managing my two-time champion fantasy basketball team.
Maps By Jess Burbank
During this stressful time of quarantine, my mother has suffered from high blood pressure and cabin fever--two things that don't mix well. I didn't realize the severity of her health issues until we tried to walk around the lake at her apartment complex, a walk we had done many, many times before, and realized that she could hardly make it around anymore. Everything on the walk felt like a danger. I documented those dangers--and my fear for her-- in this map.
