Kia ora, Olivia Aroha Giles ahau.

I am a Contemporary Artist and writer from Wellington of Ngati Kuia, Rangitane, Kahungunu, Raukawa, Te Whanau a Apanui, Te Ati Awa,  Irish and Scottish descent.   

I draw strength from my whakapapa and my connection with Papatūānuku and Ranginui, and inspiration from all the moments in my life, and the interstices’ between.

There is no “tense” in Maori just a continuous stream of existence.”
