Heritage et Al Blog - Artful Narratives and the destruction of the kahikatea forests


Heritage et Al is a blogsite which features unique collections and resources from Auckland Libraries research centres and heritage collections. This is an amazing resource and I hope you will take the opportunity to explore all that it has to offer.

I am so grateful to have had my article published about my body of work created in response to my own research done on the destruction of the kahikatea forests of Aotearoa New Zealand.

You can read my blog on Heritage et Al HERE.

This is a topic I became very passionate about, the more I researched it, and I continue to feel it is important to share this little known history of our country so that we will treasure and protect the remnants we still have, as sparse and threatened as they may be.

This body of work will feature in my solo exhibition 

Artful Narratives
