"Established in 2002, POWA Design is about
concepts and ideas that I have been harvesting for a number of years.
They are largely based on my own experiences growing up in small
town Waihi - then moving on to Auckland.
of Maori and European descent, I am the youngest of 9 children.
My fondest memories were of family excursions in the back of my
dad's 1960 PA Vauxhall Velox. We loved that big old car,
so much so, that I bought one myself in 1990.
I Graduated from Elam School of Fine Arts - University of Auckland,
with a Bachelor of Fine Arts [design major] in 1990. I also
spent a year at Auckland University of Technology doing a Certificate
in Desktop Publishing. I am now working in Web Design, Illustration
and Print. There is not a day that goes by when I am not thinking
What inspires me is my Whanau (family), culture, sport and Aotearoa.
This is what POWA is all about.
