Blue and Silver Series
She is inspired by ceramics, wood, and glass, and frequently starts with rectangles, circles, or regular polygons of paper. Rebecca often paints the paper with acrylics first and employs the wet-folding technique to create each piece. I think it's safe to say she is taking origami to new heights!
Double Diagonal Shift Vase
The visual and creative training I received in art helped me in chemistry, particularly as I started doing research. In addition, my art became highly planned, logical, and organized, reflecting my scientific thought process. Although I focused on painting, origami was a recurring theme in my work.

I see origami as lying at the intersection of art and science. This combination is what continually draws me back to the art of paper folding.
Vase with a Torn Edge
Remember, Rebecca folds each example with just one piece of paper - remarkable!

As recently as 2011, Rebecca began designing elegant origami bowls, vases, and ornaments that contrast precise folds with graceful shapes. Curious to know how she does it? You're in luck! Rebecca shares patterns and tips for creating crease pleated objects here.
Her art is for sale in Georgia, U.S. venues, including the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum in Atlanta. Additional locations can be found on her website, as well as a contact link to inquire about a specific piece or to commission one.
