Activity Report for 2020-2021

The last year has been challenging in almost every aspect. The COVID-19 situation has kept us all at home and opportunities have decreased, It’s been almost impossible to find group exhibitions to participate in, lectures and meet-ups have shifted to the virtual realm and basically a lot of activities got canceled.

That being said, there were also quite a few bright spots: I’ve started painting in oils for the first time, something which vastly contributed to the continuing evolvement of my artistic capabilities, I’ve managed to hold five solo exhibitions in between lockdowns, I've held quite a few lectures on Zoom, and, the brightest of all - my third children’s book, which I have both authored and illustrated, has been published and started selling very well!

To sum it up, the year of 2020-2021 has been challenging and difficult at times, but it taught me how to be more creative in finding opportunities and turn lemons to lemonade.
