I started origami when I was 10 years old. We had Japanese exchange students living with us at the time, and they introduced me to the art. I fell in love with it. Having been given a first name of Japanese origin, I felt a kinship with Japanese things. I think this was the actual beginning of my love with paper!

Initially I folded from memory the five or six patterns taught to me by Koji nad Ichiro. Later I discovered books and expanded my skills. From there I discovered all sorts of beautiful things to make, including paper sculptures of all types.

Eventually I entered an origami sculpture of a swan, done in miniature, in a local fair. I won Reserve Champion on it. A framed origami piece focused on my name received the Champion ribbon.

As you can see origami is greatly varied, and can be simple or intricate and just stunningly beautiful.

I have included here samples of origami I have made that is not currently for sale, but is displayed for ideas for commissioned work and custom work, as well as origami products that are for sale. I will do custom work if you specify what you are looking for.

Custom Origami Two Methods to order custom Origami.

One - Give me an idea what you would like such as color and style. I will do my best to meet your request. Two - Send me the materials that you want Origami made from, with the other specifications as necessary.

You specify, and I'll give you an estimate of the cost and time frame before anything is done.
