'Look Within' Collection
About this collection
These paintings were created during 2020 and 2021 and inspired by the way humanity rose to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Many people, particularly families with young children, had a lifestyle prior to the pandemic that was reliant on support from many different channels, such as family, friends, early years support, schools and community. Then all of a sudden, it all had to stop and we all had to manage on our own.
It was of course not without its difficulties but when there was not the option of delegating roles to someone perceived as more knowledgeable, experienced, or able, it turns out that we are enough as we are. We all have the potential to not just cope, but thrive. We all have inner strength and unique creativity that we can draw upon when needed.
