Mount Maunganui's Julie Paama-Pengelly describes herself as a painter, print-maker and graphic designer who works toward negotiating new contemporary contexts for Maori art practices and art politic. Her art practice ranges from the use of symbolic imagery to pure abstraction in graphic design, painting, mixed media and tattooing. Julie holds Masters qualifications in Maori Visual Arts (painting), and in Third World Development and is currently completing a PhD in Fine Arts with a Ta Moko portfolio.
