Paper as a material always fascinated me. Encouraged by my mother, working with paper was a means to be creative and express myself. Even now, creating something from a simple piece of paper does have a magical appeal to me. More so with Origami as it seemingly limits the possibilities to create.

Over the years my approach to create artworks with paper has changed gradually. Rather than just folding paper animals I want to create sculptures with character and emotions that will provoke and inspire people to create stories of their own. To do so I use heavy watercolor paper with a rough surface that I wet-fold and sculpt which results in a more organic almost stone-like appearance that has similarities to classical sculptures.
