After being tasked with painting a mask to represent her inner-self, Vinnie Chan was unsure of what to do - she had never painted before - but she was quickly drawn to a memory of her late mother.
With her last words, Chan's mother said that she would be back to look after her daughter. Ever since, Chan has seen a white butterfly appear at her window on her birthday. Inside her mask, Chan included images of butterflies to remember this. Created at a workshop offered by WP Puppet Theatre, Chan still keeps her mask on her writing table at home. She says that if the weather is rough outside, she just needs to look at her mask and remember the warmth of her mother being with her.
