Who We Are?
The Talent Tree was formed in May 2017 and officially launched in October 2017 by Evana Patterson, 20 year industry veteran, having worked as a model/talent herself, being heavily involved in the NZ beauty Pageant Industry and working in three top Auckland talent/model agencies.
In January 2020, The Talent Tree was acquired by current owner/operator, Tracey-Maree Houia, who herself, comes from an extensive performing background with experience in the fields of Beauty, Beauty Pageants, Modelling, Entertainment and Events.
She has over 30 years of Performing experience as a Trans-Tasman, award winning entertainer both in her solo career and in her husband and wife duo, En-TRANZET, also helping in event management with such festivals as the inaugural Norfolk Island Country Music Festival.
She has managed the career of her international model and beauty queen daughter, Brooke and has also worked as a Makeup Artist for over 25 years, giving her priceless experience and insight to the world of beauty and modeling.
Being a burn survivor, Tracey-Maree has gained the inward strength to nurture others and loves to share her journey and to encourage others on theirs; her vision and goal for TTT is to help break the ‘model’ stereotypes by providing talent of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and ages, so that this all becomes more relatable to a wider community.
