I draw my inspiration from the material itself, paper.


Focusing on an experimental hands-on approach, beginning with an initial fold, lending to subsequent folds, evolving and developing into complex three-dimensional designs.


Primarily using only paper to create intricate geometric designs, adding secondary materials such as pencil or stitch, to enhance the repetitiveness of the pattern.
