Michael G. LaFosse is widely regarded as one of the top masters of the art of origami. Together with Richard L. Alexander, he co-founded the Origamido Studio, a commercial design and fine art studio. They have authored over 50 origami books and kits, and have produced over a dozen video DVD lessons for the paper folding enthusiast, and hand paper making for the origami artist. LaFosse has taught origami in schools since 1972, and continues to work with teachers, artists, designers and performers who incorporate origami into their profession. He has lectured and demonstrated origami around the world, and has produced exhibits for the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Peabody-Essex Museum, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, the Carrousel du Louvre, Paris, and Matsuya Ginza, Tokyo. LaFosse is a biologist by training, and his best-known works are realistic origami animals and plants. Michael appears in the award-winning film, Between the Folds, a documentary about modern origami artists and scientists.
