Linda's medium is paper - specifically hundreds of handcrafted Japanese papers. Her construction process starts with choosing papers for color, patterns and texture, layering papers to create a background, then inventing 3D origami paper sculptures and gluing these one at a time over many weeks to create the depth, colors and shadows of favorite places. The gallery also features art glass from Art Glass Creative Studio. About the artist: Fluent in Japanese, Linda Stephen lived and worked in Japan for six years. She has been collecting handcrafted Japanese papers and practicing origami, the art of paper folding, for more than 20 years. Her award-winning artworks are part of public and private collections on three continents and have been featured in more than 100 juried museum and gallery exhibits nationally including the Nebraska Governor’s Mansion, the United States Botanic Garden, and the Museum of the Hudson Highlands. Her commercial art credits include animated origami dollar bill commercials for Tobacco Free Nebraska and commissions for the JW Marriott Hotel’s “sister city” collection. She presents workshops to universities, art centers and museums across the country on Japanese paper arts and origami, the Japanese art of paper folding.
