Behind the Mask –
Designed by Karen Lorena Parker:
Karen Lorena Parker is a Vancouver based artist who spearheaded the Masked Heroes initiative: “In my studio, I find art brings a calm for people to share their story, I felt the importance of contributing care during the pandemic. I wanted to use my skills to amplify the voices of the community affected by cancer.
Cancer affects us all and it was my hope this project could open up more conversation. Unsung stories could be shared through this visual platform. A moment to listen to those living through covid-19 through their beautiful art.
Parker Bees: I loved the thought of adults with cute bees to bring a smile to others. A whimsical moment to remind us of our kind, calm, caring hardworking society.”
