He Koha • The Gift



“He koha: the gift or gifts. For me this piece talks of the many gifts women bring to us. For example nurturing, support, caring, child rearing, healing, balance to the male element etc. This piece was made to honour and acknowledge those gifts. She wears huia feathers, a mark of rank, and dressed in woven attire that has elements of traditional weaving interpreted in contemporary fashion. She holds a piece of sacred pounamu the heart stone.”

“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.”
