At my prior place of employment, our main building had a Christmas tree in the lobby.   Unlike many trees, and uniquely appropriate for a Japanese company, the tree was decorated with origami models.  I learned that they had all been folded by Yuji Shinoda a seniour-level engineer employed by the company.  Shinoda-san was incredibly smart, unfailing gracious, and always helpful to a newbie to the industry who was working to develop the company’s web presence.  His work impressed me and I was captiviated by lovely paper and designs.   Intrigued and impressed I began dabbling in origami.

This interest has evolved over the years.  I now make jewelry and ornaments using models both large and small which are for sale at a few seasonal shops in the Adirondacks.  I recently created my first design: the common loon.  If you are interested in learning more please contact me.
