Michael G. LaFosse has been an origami artist for decades and is considered a leading authority and master of the art. An avid teacher, LaFosse co-founded the Origamido Studio, a learning center and design studio that produces folded art and commercial designs for a variety of international clients. LaFosse was prominently featured in the recent Peabody Award-winning film, Between the Folds, by Vanessa Gould. Co-founder of the Origamido Studio, Richard L. Alexander is the chief papermaker and is a frequent collaborator with other famous paper artists. He has consulted with apparel, container, toy, and consumer product designers to incorporate folding theory into daily-use objects. Together, Alexander and LaFosse have created dozens of origami exhibitions, and more than seventy books, kits, and videos about paper and paper arts.
