Located in Champers Restaurant in Christ Church is On the Wall, an eclectic little art and souvenir shop featuring the collected works of Vanita Gopwani. Once an accountant, Gopwani decided to leave it all behind to become an artist, and several decades and many awards later, she is still going strong.
