About the Artists

Michael G. LaFosse has been working for over 40 years as an origami artist, papermaker and author. Trained as a biologist, he finds his strongest inspiration in the natural world preferring to study his subjects in their natural habitats. He credits the work of the late Japanese Origami Grand Master, Akira Yoshizawa, for leading the way by exploring nature and achieving creative expression in origami art.

In 1996, Michael and Richard Alexander co-founded the Origamido Studio, a teaching center, gallery and origami design studio where they author publications of their original origami sculptures and make custom, handmade paper for each new creation.

Richard Alexander holds a B.S. from Cornell University, where he studied systems biology and landscape architecture. He held environmental positions in government and industry and is a Past President of the New England regional Certified Hazardous Materials Managers chapter. Richard’s background in industrial training made it easy for him to become a seasoned teacher of origami and hand papermaking.
