I am a fibre artist and passionate about weaving harakeke (flax) since I first touched it. My husband taught me raranga harakeke when I came to New Zealand in 2011, and in 2018 I gained the National Diploma in Maori Art(raranga).

I feel privileged being able to learn about Māori culture through weaving and speaking and I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing my knowledge of this beautiful art with you.
