Māori (Ngati Pikiao)

(1990- )


Heeds started his apprenticeship with Gordon Toi as a Ta Moko artist when he was 16 years old and within a seemingly short amount of time Heeds has developed his tattooing, wood carving, and stone carving skills up to a level of expertise.

Heeds has exhibited his woodcarving in a number of galleries in New Zealand and has travelled with Gordon Toi to the Netherlands for several years to showcase their work in traditional Maori Ta Moko.

Heeds works under the House of Natives in Auckland, New Zealand.
