Work on Paper

Korotangi Series

I did not want to simply illustrate the Tainiu taonga – Korotangi for obvious and subtle reasons.

Waituhi Series

I’m haunted when finding the old sketches of our old kaumatua or ancestors.

Maorigami Series

I believe that our Maori Visual Culture is much more than regional style, symbol and interpretation, geometric analysis and decoration.


Large Drawings

Perhaps big is often stink ! However…

Axis Mundi Series

In other words it’s about the stuff I feel, think and see.
