The opening reception for Purely Paper last Thursday evening was a packed affair. I was pleasantly surprised the show drew a large enthusiastic crowd to the North Shore to see the work.

Here are a few photos of the exhibition (mostly so my mom can see it), to give you an idea of what it looks like. It’s a good mix of work by the five participating artists – Joseph Wu, Connie Sabo, Mehran Modarres-Sadeghi, Anyuta Gusakova, and me. It’s a beautiful show and I could not be more pleased to be a part of it.

I’ve been invited to demonstrate paper cutting as an activity during the North Shore Art Crawl this Saturday at Cityscape Gallery. I’ll be teaching visitors how to create simple symmetrical kirigami designs through cutting and folding, exactly like the examples I’ve included here.

I was doing research into spring-themed designs and came across these ones for sakura. Of course I had to make one of my own.
