Online sales

IMG_0502I’m often asked whether I sell my origami online. I regret to say that I do not presently sell from my website. There are several reasons. The most important of these is that I want my patrons to see exactly what they are getting—true daylight color, paper texture, quality of the work, etc. when they make a purchase. Secondly, I really enjoy talking with my customers and making the experience a personal interaction rather than just a ‘sale’. Finally, I travel frequently and would not want to disappoint people by not filling their requests promptly.

My work is available at craft shows (see 2015 schedule below) and also at the Pink Llama Gallery on Washington Avenue in Cedarburg, Wisconsin.

Thank you for your patronage, and I hope to see you at a future show.

Summer is finally here! It feels like a long time coming.


These colorful origami flowers, called Kusudama, are new for 2015.  Each of the five petals is folded from a separate piece of paper.  The petals are then glued to

each other and to the stem.





This is my show schedule for the remainder of 2015.  I look forward to seeing you!

For those of you who will be in the Madison area, the Wisconsin Alliance of Arts and Craftspeople will be having an exhibit and sale at the UW Hospital during the month of February, 2014. I am proud to announce that two of my works will be on exhibit and available for purchase. Part of the proceeds from the sale go to the hospital art fund, which is used to purchase art for the hospital’s permanent collection. The public is welcome to attend and purchase artwork from a wide range of talented Wisconsin artists and craftspeople.  The artwork will be exhibited primarily in the surgical waiting room.


Happy New Year to all of you! We’re looking forward to posting our schedule for 2014 as soon as we receive confirmation for upcoming shows. Have a good start to the new year!


This year I’m adding a new collection of origami cranes that incorporate beautiful yarns and tassels. All of the tassels are hand made. They look lovely hanging near a window, suspended from a car’s rear view mirror, or in any spot in your home or office that could use a bit of color and movement.
