"My intentions as an artist are to harmoniously blend traditional Maori design elements and components with my own personal interpretations, whilst integrating the elements and technical aspects of art from the contemporary realm. I have always loved the beauty, simplicity and strength of Maori art and design. The natural bold shapes and impossibly precise linework of Taamoko and Whakairo (Tattooing and Carving) have influenced my art immensely. I strive to create an eclectic style of contemporary art that infuses timeless styles and injects an enthusiastic, vibrant perspective which all people may relate to and appreciate."
