Lockdown Competition Winner Inspired by Grayson Perry 

Last summer we invited people of all ages to express their experience of lockdown through words, pictures or music. The adult winner of our ‚ÄėMy Life in Lockdown‚Äô competition was Suzie Yates, for her beautiful paintings inspired by walks around Crediton. But, as she explains here, she had only recently taken up painting to help cope with the anxiety of lockdown. Inspired by Grayson Perry‚Äôs TV series Art Club, she found the confidence to pursue her passion and she is now selling her work as prints and greeting cards in local shops.
