Stages of isolation

My artwork was inspired by the re-occurring periods of isolation faced by people all over the world. I have drawn portraits of three people very close to me; they are my grandmother, mom and sister. Each woman is sitting alone on the page. They are surrounded by watercolour paint, which represents the chaotic and uncertain world outside our bubble. For me, this work represents safety, loneliness and hope. It is my way of figuring out the changes in everyday life.
