“I have been doing some exploration into the chrysalis form and symbolism. I am inspired by the form and also the symbolism of transformation and evolution. My investigation is also into moths, particularly the Puriri Moth which takes many years to grow.”

I feel a strong connection to my cultural roots, particularly since returning from 12 years in the UK and Europe. Embracing my heritage the work reflects cultural influences and my interest in the awakening of consciousness.
