Nichola Te Kiri, of dual Māori and Pākeha heritage, was raised in Kirikiriroa (Hamilton), Aotearoa. Her upbringing within two worlds has helped develop her aesthetic for bold and courageous lines, prints and designs.
Nichola believes it's important for her mahi to tell a story. Every item has a journey from inspiration to creation. It is the sharing of this story which makes the taonga come alive.
