Caroline Preston folds origami to create a palette of colour for her origami compositions. Using Washi (Japanese Origami paper, 'known to last forever', she folds the origami crane which is a symbol of peace, love and longevity. She also writes her own poetry and includes this in her work. Having travelled to Japan during her Fine Art Degree hen she first learnt to fold origami, to a time when she was able to live and work there, Japanese cultures have been strong influences on her work. Legend states that the person who folds 1,000 cranes will be granted their wish and Caroline is certainly on her way to being granted many wishes.
