What has creating art meant to you over the last year?

I used to draw as a teenager, yet I stopped for a while due to life commitments. During the pandemic, I have taken this passion back. For me, drawing became a moment of meditation, of catharsis and a way to channel my emotions during such difficult times.
It has allowed me as well to reflect on the similarities that drawing shares with music, especially as a string player. In fact, whether it is an image or a sound, the result depends on my right hand gesture, on the speed and pressure I apply while moving the bow or the pencil.
