Between Two Worlds
When I found my way home and my birth family, it opened up a new world of possibilities. I understood more of who I am and this clearer identity has given me such a greater sense of self worth. I am a child of two worlds, both Pākehā & Māori, adopted family and birth family. Learning from both worlds, I feel more grounded. Understanding my true self has strengthen my heart and made me a stronger person. This painting celebrates the freedom to be who you have been created to be, in all it’s entirety.
