Artist in Resident at the Metropolitan Museum of Art 2016

Kia ora, thanks for stopping by. The purpose of this blog is to document my 2016 Summer Residency at The Metropolitan Museum of Art – NYC.

You can see examples of my work here, here and here. And a bit more about this adventure here and here.

I wish to thank the Oceania galleries’ Māori and Pacific collections for this exciting opportunity. I look forward to demonstrating, delivering and displaying my contemporary style of mahi raranga woven work in my new surrounds.
