Welcome to your online sanctuary. Experience, deepen, and share

explore the rich complexities of the human experience and
feel a sense of possibility so needed in painful times.
“Origami” comes from the Japanese language – “ori” meaning folded and “kami” meaning paper. For Kyoko, paper is a metaphor for life. You make use of what lines and points there are, and you create something out of what you’ve got.
