Personally I have been quite comfortable working and living in isolation as I’m not alone. In fact I’ve found having time to think and create at my own pace has reduced the pressure (self induced) to do rather than be. I’ve decided to spend this time trying out new things (hence the video), practicing my drawing skills and trying out techniques and materials I haven’t had time for before now. It’s quite a luxury, and apart from the obvious concern for others, I’m really enjoying the peace and quiet!
