Mitchell and Blue

Having been a professional and published photographer as well as studying figurative sculpture for 3 years at The Heatherly School of Fine Art, Chelsea, Patricia stumbled across the ancient art of origami purely by chance. Delving deeper into this extraordinary method of manipulating paper into shapes, she found that origami became strangely engaging and very meditative. Her papery world led her down many avenues of creative design – discovering new methods of designing paper shapes, using bright and interesting papers, cutting shapes, and manipulating paper to bring a new and totally unique type of mixed media art to the market.

Her paper shapes take on the form of elephants, giraffes, bumble bees, dragon flies, to name a few – and are set on different levels by clear perspex rod to create a 3D effect. With the right lighting, the shapes cast incredible shadows making the piece a focal point of any room. Patricia has also designed ‘lit edge’ neon perspex boxes for the more elaborate colourful displays. She can make to order, using any paper the client wishes, in any size box.
