Tena Koe,

Ko Pukehapopo toku maunga Ko Waiomoko toku awa Ko Whangara-Mai-Tawhiti toku Marae. Ko Whitireia toku Wharenui Ko Paikea toku tupuna Ko Ngati Konohi toku iwi Ko Terangi Roimata Kutia-Tataurangi toku ingoa. No Whangara ahau.

I am a Wife, Mother, Professional in the Nail & Beauty Industry & a Contemporary Maori Artist. I come from a very whanau (family) orientated background & believe strongly in providing a stable & culturally infused lifestyle for my husband & children.

I have a background in Make-Up Artistry, Photography, Nail Artistry & Maori Art. My long-life passion lives in art & creativity – i see inspiration in everything. My goal is to combine my passion, profession & new found knowledge & skills i’ve gained in traditional Maori art forms & tikanga, into a niche market business venture.

Im determined & ambitious to fulfill my own expectations of myself in business & in life. I do though however, like to keep it well balanced with love, fun & laughter. Nothing ties that in better than family & good friends!

My self motto is ‘Dream..Live..Love..Breath’. Dream BIG, Live LIFE, Love ALOT & dont forget to BREATHE! It comes from this Whakatauki (Maori Proverb): ‘Tama Tu, Tama Ora, Tama Noho, Tama Mate.’ It means – ‘Stand, Live, Sit, Die’ & basically means that in order to achieve & succeed we need to stand up, be involved & take charge. If we sit & do nothing we will get nowhere.

No reira, Tena Tatou Katoa. XX

  1. What’s the first paragraph all about? It’s not a language I’ve seen before.

  2. I am really impressed together with your writing talents and also with the format on your weblog.
    Is that this a paid subject matter or did
    you modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to look a nice weblog like this one nowadays..

    • Kia ora, thank you for your feedback. I use this blog purely as a way to encourage & expand my writting skills as well as a documentation of project involvements, processes etc.. I modify everything myself – not paid to write or keep this blog. I’m glad you enjoyed reading & looking through my blogs : ) Thank you x
