I am a Maori and Tongan artist from Te Tai Tokerau, Aotearoa (Northland, New Zealand). I am from the iwi (tribe) of Ngapuhi and the hapu (sub-tribes) of Ngai Tawake ki te tuawhenua, Ngati Rehia and Te Whiu. Since returning home a year ago, I have started to appreciate little things such as observing the rangi (sky), whenua (land) and moana (sea) in our tribal area. My drawing is informed by these observations of the taiao (environment) and is part of a series of section drawings through the maunga (mountains) of Te Tai Tokerau.
