Paper Abstract Series 1
I began my curiosity with origami paper architecture &  modular paper folding by simply creasing & gently rounding pieces of paper (as seen in this series) in unique & beautiful ways. From there I wanted to grow & develop more complex folds & creases to enhance my work.

I followed my creases & rounding paper series with a basic attempt to fold a piece of paper once or twice through its centre length & or  width-wise. I wanted to capture minimal lines & contrast.

Paper Designs

I worked on modular origami, paper architecture & design while studying the work of Paul Jackson, Mark Bolitho. Paul Jackson illustrated wonderful techniques to help me better understand herringbone tessellations. I also found several YouTube videos providing wonderful insight into how to fold these tricky designs. I read about Miura who created the Miura fold, which is very similar to the herringbone tessellations seen in this series. Mark Bolitho & Paul Jackson both had great instruction on how to fold what can be known as a Schwarz Lantern, a Kresling fold or the Hexagonal fold. I read about Yoshimura who created a similar design known as the Yoshimura pattern.

My next project was singular & multiple creases & folds to create elegant & simplified designs with curves. I placed several single & multiple creased designs on top of each other to create more complex designs & curves. I experimented with offsetting pleats & creases to create depth. I began studying the work & instruction of Paul Jackson.

Paper Architecture 
I wanted to create more specific creases & curves focusing on architecture & design. These creases would further my discovery & understanding of Paul Jackson’s work. I studied his techniques for single folds, studying how these creases would create different patterns & designs.

Origami Butterflies
After I began reading Paul Jackson’s books I felt an urge to explore traditional origami. I wanted to create lifelike butterflies, swans & crows. I began searching for artists, creators & folders on YouTube. I found The Origami Princess & JeremyShaferOrigami who both had instructions on how to fold butterflies. I found folding instructions on a few iOS apps as well as instructions found in the backs of origami paper. I read about Yoshizawa & their butterfly creations on the internet. All these instructions & designers inspired me to fold these butterflies.

Paper & Light in Abstract
I began studying how light & colour reflected off the paper & its fibers. I saw an opportunity to create something abstract like a painting using paper & light.
