The story of Nostalgia:

“I wanted this piece to feel positive and fun by showcasing some of my favourite elements of Island culture and celebration. These images and colours reflect warm memories shared during traditional gatherings with family.

The brightly coloured flowers represent those that adorn the table tops in abundance as we feast together. The banana leaves arranged together with the fruits that fill our bellies. The younger girls dancing with swaying hips and confident smiles. A modern take on old traditions, conjuring up joyful memories that feed the soul.”
