I have always been inspired by Islamic architecture and tile designs, admiring how such vibrant geometric shapes could bring peace into a space.
This, one of my earliest large-scale pieces, aimed to recreate that effect.
The piece is held together by its folds alone, with no glue or tape used.
I was asked to create a mandala style image for a client inspired by flowers and using bold colours.
Studying the perfect petals of dahlias blooming in the late summer provided the inspiration.
As you move around the piece, it reveals the depth of each fold.
This was the first piece of work after I gave birth for the second time.
My work often starts as an experiment, but this shape soon spoke to me as a celebration of life.
I enjoyed how the cuts sculpted the paper without me even having to fold them.
