Origami has taught me two very important lessons - patience and perseverance. I have reached a point where I find something romantic about a piece of paper. Once it's in my hands, we co-exist till we have completely transformed each other. For the past 7 years, I have been teaching origami to children, college students, mothers, working professionals as well as grandparents, and have come to love the fact how everyone has something to take away from it. My work constantly challenges me to take risks, be it with the complexity of the fold, the scale of the final piece, or the medium itself. It excites me to think how I want to take origami to the world, and in return how it would take me to the world.
I had a textile career and left that for Origami because I found my passion in folding. I have been folding for the past ten years now and love spreading and teaching this skill. Origami is not just recreational but also helps at developing the ability to think and find solutions, Improve diligence and accuracy, develop the ability to follow instructions, sharpen memory and imagination and develops creativity and art.
