Growing up I have always been a
creative introvert. As artists, we are used to working alone in isolation for
most of the day. We diligently work in our studios, happily painting and
creating and escaping the world around us. It is our safe haven and bubble. It
is where you can express yourself with no judgment, the only person you are
with is you. As an artist, if you work alone in your studio you are choosing to
be alone to create. During these times you do not really have a choice to be
alone. Isolation can make your familiar four walls feel like an unfamiliar
place. You sometimes feel like you are just fading into the background and
slowly losing part of yourself. We have a certain voice that cannot always be
heard. You cannot remember what times were like just a few short months ago.
The “new” normal is so foreign and anxiety is through the roof. So even if you
want to go out meet people, see places, and do things you do not! Because fear
and anxiety are so consuming. It is easier to just stay home do the same
routine, same things, and become a wallflower.
