Born in Invercargill, Karina is married to local man Joe Reti and lives in Napier. She went back to school once her family were grown, to “do something with my scribbles”.

Karina finished with two Degrees:

  • 2005-07, Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design, Eastern Institute of Technology, Taradale;
  • 2008-09, Bachelor of Maori Art, Toimairangi, Te Wananga o Aotearoa, Hastings.

Inspired by Tangoio Marae’s colourful tīpuna (ancestors) and their stories, Karina has illustrated these with paint on canvas and wood.

Karina comes from a strong line of Ngāi Tahu and Ngāti Kahungunu women, for that reason her art works are interwoven with their impressive tribal histories.

Karina is a keen artist and doesn’t feel that she has yet found her “style or niche” and strives to prove wrong the saying “life gets in the way of creating Art”.
