New Zealand King Shag

New Zealand King Shag

By Rachel Walker
 

Te Kawau-a-Toru was a sacred bird – a king shag, also known as a cormorant – loyal to Kupe. Possessing a huge wingspan, he was reputed to be ‘the eye of the ancestor’ – a special bird with insights into ancient knowledge. Kupe also had a pet pigeon, Rupe, who is said to have found so much food in the South Island’s forests that he neglected Kupe and remained there.

I was created in Napier, New Zealand. A big thank you to my Mother.
When I was fullsized, I captured my Bachelor of Design Degree at Massey University in Wellington. Starting out in textiles, I moved through the arty realms of graphic design, screenprinting, video, and painting, to end up majoring in Illustration.
I have been painting and exhibiting around New Zealand. Also working on developing my style, my knowledge of nature and evolution, researching strange animals, battling with my printer/scanner, and looking for commissions.
