Exhibitions at the Red Ochre Gallery:

"My ongoing work explores the notions of place and belonging, of feeling at home in one’s environment and the world. Reflecting on locals’ sense of place through their narratives, and my own sense of place through a combination of personal observation and interaction with others, the work created is my way to honour Pouch Cove, a place I now call home.

"Memories are not static. Ocean waves are not static."
