Born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica, I started my journey in entertainment as a theatre director. As a storyteller and at heart a filmmaker, my passion for cinema lead me to produce stories, concepts, ideas with a collaborative team via The Loft Works Studio. My mission — to connect and engage an audience through the art of storytelling.
I like you for being you!
The beginning stages of butterflies in your stomach. Feeling giddy for no reason at all. Smiling. Glowing with delight at the beginning of an affair. But is this love? Will this love continue to grow in the good times and the bad … And how bad can it get?
Where we are now and where we will be 5 years from now is anyone’s guess, but life in itself is about taking chances, making choices, and relishing all the good in between.
When life happens and it will get tough, the choice to stay or to leave is what we ask. The question: has time brought you both together or has life torn you apart.
Where do you go from here is the underlying subtext of this work. Will an illness break you both apart or will the bonds of time force you to stay?

“The content and message not withstanding, Ehrhardt is evidently an earnest practitioner of her craft. Her directing and staging team offered huge supports for the project. Director Monique Lai, a Fine Arts photographer, challenged Ehrhardt to use every possible aspect of the stage frame. A visit to world famous Dunns River Falls with her unwitting prey — ‘the American, the arachnid Ehrhardt lolls on top of chairs in a sultry and suggestive pose akin to that of a bikini model reclining on sand’.”
“As a performer, Ms. Ehrhardt aptly transforms into different characters’ bodies and voices. We are in trustworthy hands as she takes us through moments of deep compassion, heavy fear, and youthful delight. Equally adept as a writer, she knows how to command rapt attention through suspense and jarring juxtapositions. With the assistance of simple, yet effective staging by Monique Lai, Ehrhardt offers an experience that attunes the audience to the power of personal storytelling.”

“We value great photographers for their rare ability to see the same everyday scenes and objects we all do. And yet, through their vision, skills and a little magic, transform them into something very different, moving, and eternal— fine art. We are privileged in this auction to present the works of accomplished, unique photographers who have risen to the challenge of interpreting and defining life’s large and small ideas, objects and events through the magic of their lenses, and have done so impressively.” – BNO Auction
