Jody Graham is a multidisciplinary artist who uses unconventional tools and approaches when drawing, such as a rocks, bones or wire bound to the back of her hand or a bent umbrella. Jody Graham’s ideas celebrate the broken, displaced and forgotten, speaking to a compulsion to restore and rescue discarded material with an anti-consumerist and recycling ethos.


Facing Coronavirus Portraits

Facing Coronavirus

A collection of portraits of people as they face the coronavirus pandemic.

Facing Coronavirus Portraits are a way to connect and explore creativity with others.

To do this, I zoom chat old and new friends while drawing their portraits.

I am interested in knowing how the coronavirus has played out in people’s lives. I am especially interested in documenting one positive and one negative consequence. This information will help give a realistic picture of how the pandemic has affected others and assist the creation of authentic artwork about this period of our life.

If you would like to participate in this project by either drawing your own expressive portrait or a zoom chat or both please contact me on
