About Yuki Martin

Born and raised in Japan, I enjoyed a fair share of origami just like most Japanese children, but I had forgotten about it as I grew older. It is only since 2006 that I started folding paper again, while teaching school aged children. My interest in origami grew over the years since then, and it eventually became my main subject to teach, and my passion.

I live in Portland, Oregon and teach at local schools, libraries, camps, elder care facilities, correctional facilities, and at special events. I have taught a wide age range of people from pre-school and school aged children, teens, adults, seniors, as well as in multi-age and intergenerational settings. I love promoting this form of art that can be enjoyed by a wide variety of people.
