Local Life:

Moments of Joy from South Gippsland 

Olivia O’Connor

Welcome to ‘Local Life: Moments of Joy from South Gippsland’, where I invite you to share in my appreciation for the local landscape and the animals that call it home — holding a special place in my heart.

Through the slow, traditional, and reductive process of woodcarving and printed wood engravings, I strive to encapsulate just a few of the little moments of joy, delight and calm that are found in daily life throughout our beautiful South Gippsland.

As you engage with this collection, I hope you find yourself enveloped in the sense of calm and joy that these scenes evoke, and that you cherish the unassuming moments that enrich our lives.
