    I wanted to take you through how I created this. Once everything is folded I set up the shot on a colour backdrop. I use an app called Dragonframe to shoot the photo. Once that's done I import the pics into @adobecreativecloud Lightroom where I touch the photo up a little. Then into @photoshop where I get rid of the parts I don't want in the photo. There is a timelapse video in my stories if you'd like to see the basic process. Let me know if you have any questions.

    @nikkialbertyn and I ran down to the beach today to catch the sunrise. I really wanted to share how awesome it looked and all I could fold in time was a yellow crane 😋 #bali #origami #whiteonriceorigami

    I got to share my story with Yuri. He has a podcast called Advance Your Art. He gives insights and advice to people wanting to move from artist to creative entrepreneur. I've linked the talk I had with Yuri in my bio if you'd like to give it a listen. Otherwise head over to and listen to some of the other great conversations Yuri has had with other creatives. Oh, and Yuri asked me to fold a lobster cos he lives in Boston :) Lobster designed by Michael La Fosse #origami #podcast

    Butterflies and butter cream. I had the chance to do a job with the @sweet.lionheart team. Two origami butterfly toppers on a delicious white chocolate mud cake. If you ever have the privilege of taking a bite of a @sweet.lionheart product, you'll know why everyone is talking about them. #origami #sweetlionheart

    The idea behind this was to have the shadow as the crease pattern of the butterfly. Just tryna get creative over here. #WHPgeometric

    I've been asked to be part of @traveldesigner 's “Cape Town Legends” series. You get to spend some time with myself and Ozzy (@traveldesigner) and be part of the Cape Town experience. We'll grab a coffee and talk origami and all things Cape Town and I'll fold something with you. If you're from out of town and are visiting Cape Town at some point, contact @traveldesigner for some details regarding the experience. #origami #traveldesigner

    I had the privilege of hearing @loyisomkize speak on Friday about his journey and his work and I was inspired to try something different. #origami #comic
