My report card in kindergarten stated that I “work well with paper and scissors.” Paper crafts have been a passion throughout my life, and in my adulthood, I have integrated them with my desktop publishing skills to create unique works of art. Recently, I discovered the wonders of Graphtec’s Craft ROBO—a computer-controlled cutting machine for paper, card-stocks, and lightweight plastics. Smaller than a breadbox, this amazing “new toy” helped create many of the models shown in my book, <i>Kirigami</i>. I hope it will save me from X-Acto cuts and wrist fatigue. I am also the author and designer of <i>TearPlanes, Jewelgami,</i> and <i>Bugagami</i>—origami books that feature unique and beautiful micro-perforated paper with each page. I work as an author, graphic designer, and artist in New York City.
