2020 has been an incredibly difficulty year for everyone, including artists, musicians and creative people isolated in their studios.  All open studio events, exhibitions and courses were cancelled and so a scheme called the Artist Support Pledge set up by artist Matthew Burrows inspired many artists like me on paths otherwise untrodden via the social media platform Instagram. 

I ended up creating three projects for myself : 21 days in Isolation; Holding Series; and, in November during the second lockdown, my Lucky Dip Project. For more information please visit: https://www.lesleybirchartist.com/pandemic-projects.html
