“Manu tukutuku (kites) were flown in celebration of the Māori New Year. For me manu tukutuku forms represent seeking lofty ideals, flying to, and associations with the heavens, divine knowledge. Seeking visions for the future. Surface pattern pākati / haehae, remembering those ancestors who have come before us.”

(1970- )

“I have been fortunate enough to have a supportive family and met many inspiring people in my life who have encouraged me to follow my talents and passion. My father, a woodcarver himself, imparted his knowledge of woodcraft plus provided a creative environment and stories of my great-uncles Pine and John Taiapa, who were Tohunga Whakairo. I have always respected and been inspired by the artistic achievements by indigenous artisans in Aotearoa and throughout the world.”
