We went to the gallery when the painter was working on his very unusual paintings. They are of high quality. It is worth visiting.

The shop is an colorful experience with jewelry paintings and indigenous art. The owner Porchie is a warm and friendly host who invites you into his creative space. A Bonus if he is in the shop when you visit.

The perfect place for local art work, crafts, culinary art and just fun pieces for foreign and local tourists alike. A bit pricey for local tourists, but still a treat to meander through the gallery full of brightly coloured pieces.
