The Covid 19 Pandemic and the lockdown that followed came upon us suddenly and dramatically, changing all of our lives. I have been astounded yet again by the incredible creations of the Ardmore Artists, emerging from humble working conditions in the Lidgetton Valley close to our studio. The artists were inevitably impacted and influenced by what was happening around us. The luxury of time gave us the opportunity to return to storytelling. We now question the way humans help create the conditions that led us in the pandemic, and the artists have explored new ways to find balance in nature. This pandemic has reminded us that creativity and art will always find a way.
