“There is nothing that I find more meditative than being engrossed in playing with paper.” ~Madhura Gupta
At this point, she has lost count of just how many designs she’s created. Diagrams of some of her models have been published in the British Origami Society (BOS) magazine, the CDO convention book, and OrigamiUSA’s The Fold.
In addition to her love of origami, Madhura is also passionate about cooking. Very recently, she taught herself the basics of crocheting, and also learned how to solve the Rubik’s cube – something she wanted to do for a long time. Madhura loves spending time with her family, and loves her dogs a lot!
