Origami is my greatest passion. I created by first designs by experimenting with different folds on paper and seeing if I liked the results. My current work now involves precise calculations, and I generate the crease patterns for my designs on a computer. Mathematics, science, nature, and color theory serve as inspiration for all my works. I love all things bright and colorful, and paper is a great medium to express that love.
3-4-6-12 tiling
28 x 32 x 4 cm
stardream paper

This origami corrugation was designed using the method presented in the short paper, "Origami Explorations of Convex Uniform Tilings Through the Lens of Ron Resch's Linear Flower", by Uyen Nguyen and Ben Fritzson. It was modeled after a 2-isohedral uniform tiling and has triangular, square, hexagonal, and dodecagonal complex units and kisrhombille and deltoidal simple units. Since the heights of the complex units correspond to the number of sides, the dodecagons are tallest. This work was folded from one sheet of paper.
Pentagonal Tiling

This origami corrugation was designed using the method presented in the short paper, "Origami Explorations of Convex Uniform Tilings Through the Lens of Ron Resch's Linear Flower", by Uyen Nguyen and Ben Fritzson. It was modeled after a k-uniform dual tiling and has floret, Cairo, and prismatic pentagonal complex units and triangular, square, and hexagonal simple units. This work was folded from one sheet of paper.
