Well it’s been a mad couple of years. I got back from teaching for 10 days in Kerala, India on the 13th January 2020. Full of plans to have an exhibition in response to the trip. On the flight I did notice a lot of people wearing masks , nothing unusual I was told. By March we wer all in lockdown and it was the start of a global pandemic. Covid 19

Initially I loved it. I had to self isolate for 3 weeks, a false alarm but it gave me time to paint and boy did I paint. I painted portraits online every week, I took online workshops in felting and another in how artists can help to highlight the problems that our ecosystems and planet are facing.
I did a workshop with an Indian artist online that I couldn’t get to in India.
Sky arts kept every artist on the planet busy painting portraits every week for weeks on end
