I'm very proud and happy to share my newly completed work "Royal Velvet & Huia Ariki" which is currently on show at The Art Lounge in Tauranga until the 9th of March.

"Royal Velvet & Huia Ariki" is a graphite drawing on watercolour paper thats been created in 2017 its based loosely on a story around Huia-Ariki which was known to Maori as "cheifly huia". And this is my take on if Huia were still around today and living in our forests the relationship they would have with animals that inhabit them today such as the red deer.

This has been hours of work to capture the look of a rare bird and to get the detail in the velvet of the stag.
