NEA artisan Elaine Murphy is currently represented in the intriguing 'Inking the Flyleaf' exhibition at Wangaratta Library's Bainz Gallery throughout June.

"Several years ago I started folding paper flowers, a specialized form of Japanese paper folding (origami). This led me to folding books, which involves folding each and every page of a book in a particular pattern to create a range of surprising results.
I enjoy sourcing discarded books, visualising how they might be transformed for my craft, and then seeing my visions take shape."
