At the age of eight I was fortunate to have the art of Raranga handed down to me by my Nanny Kerewai Conrad. Over the years I have developed my own style while maintaining tikanga and honouring the values and skills that my Nanny instilled in me. Rāranga is my greatest passion.
I have a small business called Kaitu Arts. I create taonga such as Kete, Pikau, Pōtae and Mahi toi, based in Whangarei. Annually I attend the Waitangi Day celebrations market at Waitangi and the InnoNative market in October. I take a small amount of custom orders but i mostly like to focus on creating one-off taonga. When time allows, taonga will be available for purchase through the InnoNative store/online or via Kaitu Arts social media platforms.
