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

Since November I started to paint everyday during lockdown. I’ve painted on and off since studying Art in secondary school. I seized upon this enforced sabbatical to hone my skills and explore visual art with no time restrictions. Instagram supporters helped and encouraged my journey, I discovered an Artist/Musician community. During Lockdown, playing the viola became difficult because of neighbours now working from home. With restrictions on music-making I was so grateful to have another way of expressing and creating. Much of my work has a musical theme and came from researching the lives of composers.
