During the Covid 19 pandemic, my studio was shut and I have had to work at the dining room table with a small easel. I have been painting small works capturing my mood.

Notes from Isolation
Every Autumn, I think that I must capture the trees in my neighbourhood, they turn from green to a stunning red, orange, then brown as they fall off and leave the exposed branches. I like to walk under these trees and feel enveloped in red, the fallen leaves scrunching and whirling around in the wind. Whilst in isolation, I’ve finally had a chance to capture this.
