Because I wanted to make the transition into 3d sculpture/Installation I looked at a number of artists but have Identified Francis Upritchard, James Luna and Micheal Parekowhai as my foremost inspiration.

The return to paintings is due to the contextualisation of history of culture and what that entails and I therefore researched ethnographers who documented early traditional life of Maori in early contact. In lieu of a pinterest account I found the National library to have an extensive library of images that were more beneficial to my practice (see ‘ethnographic’ page). My statement of intent and reflective statement can be found on my ‘About’ page.
