TAA UIRA MOKO by Taryn Te Uira Beri

Taa Uira Moko by Taryn Te Uira Beri

Ko Tainui te waka

Ko Whitireia te maunga

Ko Kenepuru te awa

Ko Parirua nga tai

Ko Raukawa te moana

Ko Takapuwahia te marae

Ko Ngati Toarangatira te iwi

Mauriora!

Taa Moko artist Taryn Beri spent 3 years under the tutelage and apprenticeship of Tohunga Taa Moko, Mark Kopua. During that time she was taught, mentored, and guided through the art of Uetonga, by one of today's leading experts of the craft.

She now works from her private home studio in Wellington. She also travels frequently to other areas such as Nelson, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Taryn enjoys experimenting with contemporary moko techniques, styles and tools. She constantly strives to develop and evolve her own signature style of moko, based on the traditional teachings handed down to her by her teacher.

'Whaia nga mahi o Rarohenga' is the underlying kaupapa that informs her professional practice as a Taa Moko practioner.
