A collection of portraits of people as they face the coronavirus pandemic.
I started drawing portraits to connect with others. Life got busy answering emails, texts, responding and updating social media platforms, travelling long distances to work, I no longer had time to connect with friends. The coronavirus lockdown offered an opportunity which provided time and space in my life to reconnect with what is important to me.
My connection and relationship with others.
