My life began growing up on a farm in Southland, New Zealand.
As a young child I would often watch my Grandfather paint landscapes with oils.
This was the beginning of a life long love of art.
I began experimenting with acrylic and watercolours.
A move into mixed media, using feathers has become my main interest.
Natures beauty with its infinite variations in shapes and colours allows me
to create unique pieces of art, though many feathers used are similar,
the design of each piece varies.
Through my art I attempt to capture an everlasting image to which
one can continually enjoy.
I have titled and numbered my feather art work under the name ' huruhuru ' ,
which is the Maori word for feathers.
Maori believe feathers to be 'Chiefly ' and are used to adorn the garments of
high ranking tribe members.
