I am studying Art and Design at Ayrshire College after working for over 30 years in the hospitality industry. My drawing is of section of the trunk of an amazingly old and gnarled tree I found when out walking during lockdown. I chose this drawing to submit to the Competition as for me it represents the ugliness and tragedy we have all experienced during Covid and it reminds me of being in full lockdown and how fragile and important our health and freedom is.
