Artist Watch: Luisa Canovi

I had the pleasure of meeting Luisa Canovi at the beginning of last year and was lucky enough to work along side her in an internship at her studio.  She's an incredible artist specializing in origami, suminagashi (whirled patterns that are produced on paper when ink is floated on the surface of water, very much like marbling paper), mobiles, oriental binding, and many other arts related to paper.  She introduced me to the magic of paper, teaching me the secrets and the beauties of this material.  Check out more about her incredible paper sculptures and her other works here:
