Thank you ADVANCE YOUR ART, 60 Second docs, CraftSanity, and 97.9 WGRD

The 60 seconds that changed everything: Michigan origami artist Stacie Tamaki is an expert at crafting tiny origami -- so much so that she's made a full-time career out of it. For her, it's not just a job, but also a lifestyle. Every year, she presents her miniatures at the Grand Central Market & Deli in Michigan, and fans can purchase her art on etsy.

Advance Your Art Podcast Interview
Recently I was interviewed by Yuri Cataldo, host of the Advance Your Art podcast. We chatted about when I learned origami, how it progressed from a hidden hobby to my full time profession, how my health situation has impacted my art, what advice would I share with fledging artists, why do I create, and what is my art's purpose in my own life and the lives of those who view it.

 

This is Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood's interview with Stacie Tamaki, creator of Tinygami at ArtPrize 2016. The artwork is at Grand Central Market & Deli in Grand Rapids.

FAQ's

What kind of paper do I use? Where do I get my paper? Do I cut my paper into tiny pieces or buy it that small? These are the questions I've now been asked thousands of times. Since they are pretty consistent I thought I’d compile them together into an FAQ blog post.
