Overall a mind-blowing experience, especially for a first time flyer and first time away from home by myself. The Kiwis in LA exhibition went really well, I got presented an award which was awesome and unexpected, thought I’d just get a handshake. I was well looked after by my home-stay family Graham and Debra Wong, kept me safe and informed.
My artwork “Essence of New Zealand” below is now in the Koru Lounge of Auckland air port. For this work I selected pictures based on New Zealand geography, wildlife, significant star arrangements and used a building structure from the local Auckland port.
