Mixed Media & Origami

My most recently developed love is for origami, the ancient art of paper folding. I was introduced to it when I was a child by my father, but didn’t delve into it fully until reaching mid life. Now I use it to make boxes and ornaments, and often use it to create 3 dimensional artworks in combination with other media as well. The paradoxical qualities of paper fascinate me. It is malleable and yet quite strong at the same time. While it is folded into man-made geometric shapes, it retains it’s organic origin from plants and trees. What I once used only as a structural support for other art media has now become an art form in itself to me.
