I’m a self-taught artist with a passion for all things paper (from origami to scherenschnitte). I love molding paper into gravity-defying three-dimensional forms that never fail to mesmerize me. A math-geek to the core, this is where my passions for art and science collide. The poet in me helps me express my work in a much better way. I get to cut all the slices with my scalpel and piece them together like a puzzle afterwards; how fun is that? Most of the sculptures I make can be folded flat and are easy to carry around.
My Artist’s Statement is available here. Please feel free to share your feedback about my work so far.
exquisite, beautiful and very creative 🙂 you certainly must have patience to undertake this beautiful art form 🙂
Thank you so much for the kind words. Time is something that I seem to have run out of these days. I have a few concepts that I wish to work on but am unable to do so as I have a 45 day old son at home keeping me up at night. 😉 I will, hopefully, resume work once he settles into a sleeping routine. 🙂
ah beautiful times despite the lack of sleep 🙂 enjoy him immensely 🙂 they grow up too soon 🙂
Yes. My daughter’s 1 yr 8 months now and she’s pulling away from me as we speak, cherishing her new-found independence. If only I could stop time. 😦
Such beautiful work; each one a beauty but I do love the chess board the most. Admirable!
Thank you for the appreciation, auntie! 🙂
You are too kind, Shannon.

Wow, you make these… I’m enthralled by the complexity & creativity… shall look forward to seeing more of your blog!
Yes, I do. Thank you for the compliments. 🙂
Your work is very different and amazing to look at, to see the lines and beauty in them and to wonder how you ever pieced them all together. AND they lie flat? Amazing.
Appreciate the compliments, Lynne. Yes; each of these can be flattened out.
How lovely these are! I’ve never tried anything like this but I love origami and can do some simple ones (the simplest origami lotus flowers and leaves can look great, too, if done with care!)
Thank you for the kind words. 🙂
What beautiful work! I love the precision.
Thank you for the compliments, Suzi.
Simply superb and very much mesmerizing!

Origami is one of my favourite, however I have tried animals origami. I really like your art..
Thank you for the appreciation.
I see the mathematical influence.
Thank you Anil. 🙂
All of these are absolutely GORGEOUS!!! And amazingly creative. I have a nephew who is also a math geek — and he also loves to create with his hands — except that he does his creative work through sewing.
You’re very talented.
I’m honored by your generous compliment, Lillith. 🙂
Brilliant! Self taught artist! Inspiring! Do you like sketching/drawing too?
Thank you for the generous compliment. I’m terrible at drawing myself but love works by other artists. 🙂
I loved looking at your art, it’s stunning. Hope to see some more soon 🙂
These are very beautiful.
Thank you so much for the kind words. 🙂
Wow! incredible, Yousuf. This looks cool and fun but I’m sure it would take a lot of time and effort. Hope to see more.
