Tracey Tawhiao Ngai Te Rangi, Ngati Tuwharetoa

Tracey is a lawyer, poet, artist and film maker. She is from Matakana Island originally, however she now lives in Auckland with her family. Her distinctive newspaper paintings grace the walls of her Auckland home, proclaiming their own version of the news.

The fish motif is a recurring feature in Tracey’s paintings and the ocean is a constant theme. Thematically she also deals with what it is to be maori in a colonised country.
