Kia Ora Koutou!

I am a self-taught artist from Aotearoa (New Zealand), a country tucked into the “corner” of the globe and often left out of maps. Famous for our laid back attitudes, green lands, sheep and Lorde… among other things.

I've had a passion for Art for as long as I can remember but never went to art school, preferring instead, to teach myself and learn through intuition and experimentation. I can get quite rebellious with being told what to do if I happen to disagree (ENFP-a here), so I’m not sure I would have lasted long in a school setting anyway.

My work is heavily inspired by my Māori heritage, wairuatanga (spirituality), the esoteric and Papatūānuku (Mother Nature). I’m constantly drawn towards thoughts and concepts that lay outside of our own dimension, the reality that humans exist within and the limits of standard human consciousness.

believe in kindness, freedom, equality and truth.

Im in Ravenclaw.

Aroha Nui,
