Ode to Idra chronicles my experience on the idyllic Greek island during my first artist residency. It is a visual love letter to travelling, the bonds we make and introspection. Away from my routine, I felt a sense of freedom, surrounded by the mesmerising colours and sounds of Idra. The experience inspired me to embrace my artistic practice. I cherish the memories I created on Idra and will always be grateful for the gentle jolt it gave me, both artistically and personally.
