Elegant Origami

I love Vania Passos's fresh, imaginative approach to origami.

A graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Vania says all of the arts in one way or another are important to her - music, drawing, painting, poetry - and since 2004 when she began enthusiastically folding paper... origami.
Vania taught herself via books, the internet, and by joining groups of others who also enjoy origami.
Her floral arrangements are striking in their simplicity.

Vania participates in exhibitions, teaches workshops, and does custom design work for weddings and parties. Visit her blog to see additional beautiful examples.
