“Miniature carved Waharoa (Gateway) depicting Matariki (the Pleiades star cluster) in humanoid form, surrounded by her six daughters: Tupu-a-nuku, Tupu-a-rangi, Waiti, Waita, Waipuna-a-rangi and Ururangi. I have tried to depict this in East Coast style both in the figures and surface patterning. This is the second in this series of gateways, the first depicting Iwi-rakau was purchased by the Pataka Museum in Porirua New Zealand for their public collection.”

“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.”
